Sri Lanka has one of the worst records of human rights abuses in the world.
A report by 'Freedom from Torture' has revealed that in the last year 17 Sri Lankan asylum seekers – including a child – were tortured.
The Sri Lanka authorities used a number of horrendous torture tactics against them including:
Beatings, burning, rape and other forms of sexual violence, asphyxiation, electric shocks, mock executions, stabbings, burning with cigarettes, water boarding, suffocating with the fumes of burning chillies or petrol, slapping, punching, trampling on their heads, hands, feet, genitals and abdomen.
When their victims lost consciousness the authorities just waited till they came around and started the torture all over again.
Some were burned with heated pieces of metal - in the style of a branding iron - to ensure that they would be easily identifiable in future to the authorities.
So where did the Sri Lanka authorities learn all these barbaric torture techniques?
But what we do know is that they were trained by Police Scotland!
Trying to defend the indefensible, Chief Constable of Scotland Phil 'Gormless' said that cash-strapped Police Scotland needed to find ways of "legitimately raising revenue" and that Police Scotland's money-making deals to train authorities in brutal regimes such as Sril Lanka and Saudi Arabia were operating "with the full knowledge" of the Scottish Government and the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO).
I've heard of some disgusting ways of making money and pathetic excuses to justify it, but Police Scotland have really hit a new low by earning money from giving training to these barbarians.
Shame on you all at Police Scotland...and those in the Scottish Government for allowing it.
