Briefings

From February 2014 onwards Briefings cover a number of torture-related topics in three or four page articles.

Prior to that, from July 2009 to September 2012 Chas Raws sent out a one page Briefing nearly every month, often with items of interest from the press but also including other material e.g. text of Rev. Roy Jenkins’ sermon on 24th June 2012 marking the 25th anniversary of the UN Convention Against Torture (No 36A).  These form Briefings 1 – 39.

We are missing Briefings Nos 1, 5, 7, 12 and 13.  It would be good if we could complete the set.  Please contact Jane Laxton (janelaxton@hotmail.co.uk) if you have any of these.
