UK: House of Lords hears torture case

On 17 October, the House of Lords heard arguments in a case challenging the Government’s policy that it could use as evidence in immigration cases information obtained by torture in a third country. The case is an appeal from the Court of Appeal decision in August 2004 that such evidence could be used as long as the UK authorities were not themselves involved in the torture. The ICJ and Justice have jointly submitted an Amicus Curiae brief.
