Reid fights to end torture shield for terror suspects


Yeah I agree with you Mr.Reid, we need secure and safe society. Terrorist are terrorist they haven’t got any value for other human beings, so why should be they get protection under Human Rights? Well done implement the law ASAP…

JOHN REID, the home secretary, is heading for a showdown with the judiciary over plans to strip some terror suspects of the automatic right to be protected from torture.

Reid is preparing a new anti-terror law that would sideline human rights legislation protecting suspects from torture if ministers ruled there were “overriding considerations of national security”.

The move is aimed at foreign terrorist suspects, including 32 detained in prison without charge or being monitored on strict bail conditions.

Despite Tony Blair’s pledge after last year’s suicide bombings in London to deport them, not one has been forcibly sent home because of legal fears that they might face torture on their return.
