Medical letter writing action: Denmark: physical restraint
On 21 June 1994 AI released a report entitled "Denmark: Police ill-treatment" (EUR 18/01/94), highlighting several cases of ill-treatment including the use of a dangerous form of physical restraint known as the "leg-lock". Within a week of the report's release the Danish Minister of Justice suspended the use of the leg-lock and ordered investigations by the Commissioner of National Police and the Forensic Medical Council into the leg-lock and other forms of physical restraint practised by the Danish police.
