Torture, mobile phones and videotape

Here is the link to the first part of the documentary on torture(Arabic) that got al Jazeera journalist Houwaida Taha into trouble.

In ¨Behind the sun¨, the case of Imad al Kabir is among those discussed. The interesting thing about this particular documentary is that it´s focus is on the everyday man on the street, it might have been you or me if we were unlucky. And it shows as stated on this blog before that a culture of torture exists and that it is used routinely, probably every single day and in all sorts of cases.

Nasser Amin(Imad al Kabir´s lawyer), fellow laywer Ahmed Seif al Islam,Gamal Eid and Abelhalim Qandil are all participating. on the hole a very good documentary, i´m looking forward to the second part!

Thanks to Ensaa for providing this youtube material.
