HUMAN RIGHTS ACT - TORTURE and MENTAL TORTURE

Article 3 of the European Convention of Human Rights prohibits torture, and "inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment". There are no exceptions or limitations on this right.

This provision usually applies, apart from torture, to cases of severe police violence and poor conditions in detention. The European Court of Human Rights has further held that this provision prohibits the extradition of a person to a foreign state if they are likely to be subjected there to torture. This article has been interpreted as prohibiting a state from extraditing an individual to another state if they are likely to suffer the death penalty. This article does not, however, on its own forbid a state from imposing the death penalty within its own territory.

"Article 3 Prohibition of torture"


No one shall be subjected to torture or to inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment.

 

If you have a legitimate complaint about your local authority, the police or the prison service, evidence of corruption, or maladministration, why not put up a website about it - it is your right and you are protected by Articles 9 & 10 and other Articles as to peaceful protest.  Email us for a link and maybe the growing number of cases will galvanize our politicians to positive action.

 

THE LAW AS IT STANDS PROTECTS CORRUPT PLANNING OFFICERS AND ALLOWS THEM TO EVADE PROSECUTION FOR WRONGDOING - IF YOU AGREE A CHANGE IN THE LAW IS NECESSARY VOTE FOR IT ON OUR PROPOSED LEGISLATION PAGE

Perhaps this is a contributing factor to the plethora of reported serious abuses of authority plaguing Council's up and down the country.  Where planning is concerned there is very limited access to justice!  What is your MP doing about it?
