Dr Manhattan posted 2 weeks ago about investigative powers v human rights.
ABC National’s The Law Report is this week discussing the same case, and coercive questioning by police. Apparently that very issue is about to be decided by the European Court of Human Rights.
You might remember academics Mirko Bagaric and Julie Clarke (who has not one but eight websites!) raised this polemical issue in 2005, which raised some debate! They later wrote a book, Torture: when the unthinkable is morally permissible.
The Law Report can be downloaded, podcast, or you can read a transcript.
