Cambodia tribunal must not use torture "confessions" as a legitimate source of information (Joint public statement)
What prisoners say or “confess” to under torture should never be admissible in any court proceedings, said Amnesty International, The International Commission of Jurists and the Redress Trust, after submitting a brief to the Pre-Trial Chamber of the Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia (ECCC). The brief was submitted on 25 September 2009, as part of an application to intervene as “friends of the court” (amicus curiae) in the case of Ieng Thirith, where a dispute has arisen in respect of the potential admissibility of certain statements.
