Babar Ahmed

Human rights abuses don't surprise or shock me anymore. They should, but I fear I've become desensitised to the suffering around me because it really has become an every day thing.

Babar Ahmad is a British citizen, arrested and beaten under the veil of the Terrorism Act. Released without charge he was subsequently re-arrested on an extradition warrant from the US.

I don't know the guy. But I do know that nobody, be they innocent or guilty should face the barbarism that is now rife in our justice system.
