Torture in Sri Lanka - ‘Many times I would lose consciousness’ - 26 يونيو 2013

Headline Title:  ‘Many times I would lose consciousness’ Thevan (not his real name) has flashbacks of the impossible days he spent being tortured in a police cell in Sri Lanka’s capital, Colombo. Thevan spent many months in detention in Sri Lanka, where security forces tortured him into "confessing" to being part of the Tamil Tigers. Media Node:  Sri Lanka Story Location:  سري لانكا 6° 33' 45.9144" N, 80° 51' 33.75" E “I was blindfolded and with my hands tied behind my back. Sometimes our heads were banged against the wall or we would be kicked on our chests. Many times I was half conscious or would lose consciousness. When I would come back I would find people hitting me. They used to say: ‘You must accept that you are part of the Tamil Tigers and you must sign these papers’.” Source:  Sri Lankan torture survivor. “Thevan’s story clearly shows how poorly the legal system functions in Sri Lanka. The fact that there was no charge against him, that he was repeatedly tortured, and had no idea if was going to be held in prison for a day or two, five months or 30 years, shows exactly what is wrong with the system.” Source:  Polly Truscott, Deputy Asia-Pacific Director at Amnesty International. المسار:  Read this feature in Sinhalese الوصف:  Feature, 24 June 2013 المسار:  Take Action! الوصف:  Feature, 1 May 2013 المسار:  Torture in Mexico: ‘I still think it was a nightmare’ الوصف:  Feature, 25 June 2013 المسار:  'There are no human rights in Sri Lanka' المسار:  Torture in Eritrea: ‘Every night you hear shouts and cries of people being beaten’
