ADMISSIBILITY OF EVIDENCE OBTAINED BY TORTURE

It would be contrary to the exercise of the statutory power and unrealistic to expect the home secretary to investigate each statement relied on to issue a certificate under the Anti-terrorism, Crime and Security Act 2001 s.21 with a view to deciding whether circumstances in which the statement was obtained involved torture, thereby breaching European Convention on Human Rights 1950 Art.3.
