"Some observers say recent Iranian moves to improve its human rights image could make it easier for the EU to maintain its current position on the nuclear issue. On April 28, the head of Iran’s conservative-dominated judiciary, Ayatollah Mahmud Hashemi-Shahrudi, issued a directive that formally prohibited the use of torture against imprisoned Iranians."

You have got to be kidding me. He has formally prohibited it, but I'm sure informally it is A-OK. As long as you pay lip service to the EU, then you can get away with it.
It is absolutely pathetic the lack of attention in the US about what is going on in Iran even though they are no doubtedly have their hands in Iraq against our men and women. But to those over there who fight for liberty, there are many people in this country who support you and never,ever, ever give up. Simple words but hard to follow...but the reward is what we sometimes take for granted over here called FREEDOM.
