Labour Admits Wrongfulness In Civil Liberties
Finally the matters of law disputes have been admitted by the Labour party – Mr Balls confirmed in an interview that the labour party has made several wrongful decisions in treating people under the priority of national security and thus infringing the civil liberties of people protected by law. This comes after the government of day is forced to pay millions of compensations to victims of terrorism investigations conducted under the previous power holders – the Labours.
Truly, the approach that Blair’s and Brown’s offices took in dealing with the terrorism threats was in some sense efficient – the UK was protected by several threats and quickly responded to a threat that materialised. However, thousands of suspects that had nothing to do with terrorism were investigated and their treatment involved inhuman approaches – torture, violence, deportation and false imprisonment.
All these are contained in the articles of the European Convention on Human Rights as conduct that is penalised and whoever obtain evidence under such an approach cannot use that in proceedings. The issue here is the consideration that the national security services have made before using these methods – truly they might be considered justified since they acted in such a manner in order to preserve the greater good, to secure the well being of the British people and to protect the nation from attacks. However, they have investigated thousands of people that have no connection with terrorism groups – simple people like diesel traders and groceries shop owners. What was the point of that – randomly torturing people in order to obtain lies from them – obviously they would lie and do anything just to be set aside from torturing.
Definitely acting without evidence in an inhuman manner was a wrong step for the labours – a wrong step that is going to cost a lot for the British taxpayers who would have to pay the huge compensations for the victims of those unlawful investigations.
