These powers, dangerous in the hands of any security force, are being given to police units already proven guilty of hundreds of acts of brutality and torture. Evidence of this abuse is documented in our report, Policing as Torture released in June. JPP and the Lowenstein Clinic investigated 1,867 complaints of police abuse of detained individuals that occurred in Faisalabad, Pakistan, from 2006 to 2012. JPP obtained medical records documenting this police abuse. The examinations were conducted by government physicians, and the records are used in Pakistani courts as evidence to support allegations of police mistreatment, including torture.
