China Bans Evidence from Torture

The BBC reports:

Evidence obtained under cannot be used in China’s courts, the government has said, weeks after a convicted murderer was set free because his victim turned out to be alive.

Laws banning torture are already in place, but analysts say they are widely disregarded.

Officials were embarrassed by the case of Zhao Zuohai, who spent 11 years in jail for a murder that never happened.

He says he was beaten by police until he confessed.
