Even terrorists must not be tortured

According to this Human Rights Watch has asked President Husni Mubarak to immediately order a retrial for three men convicted of playing a role in the October 2004 terrorist attacks in Sinai resort town of Taba. The three men were sentenced to death but HRW says that serious allegations of torture and forced confessions, as well as prolonged incommunicado detention and lack of consultation with counsel, raise significant doubts about the fairness of the trial.

The Egyptian government must learn how to be civilized an what a fair trial means. These guys may be terrorists and may be guilty, but if you torture the shit out of them and deny them their rights then the whole trial becomes null and void. You can't do this kind of shit in the fucking 21st century and expect to get away with it.
