The quoted documents state:
“Sleeping is a life-sustaining activity — i.e., it must occur at some time in some place”
So, a simple question:
Is it the case that to deprive someone of sleep – deliberately, and as part of an interrogation and torture regime – is depriving them of a life-sustaining activity?
Where is the legal culpability then for a deliberate regime of sleep deprivation, which deprives someone of a life-sustaining activity? Surely it lies with the agency or individual that imposed the regime?
And is it something that will prevent sleep deprivation being used as a torture or interrogative technique ever again?
So many questions…
