A delegation from the human rights watchdog Amnesty International are in Newry today to visit Ardmore PSNI Station after various allegations of ‘cruel and unusual punishment’ have been made against the police.
In the past month it has been alleged that the Newry PSNI are making people listen to Nathan Carter while they are locked in a holding cell.
An Amnesty International spokesman told Newry Spud:
“In my 30 years as a human rights advocate I’ve never dealt with anything as cruel and abhorrent. The Newry PSNI are making suspects listen to ‘Waggon Wheel’ on repeat for up to 3 hours at a time. I’ve been in the Sudan, Iraq and Libya and have never seen such cruelty.”
