Amnesty alleges Italian police 'torture' of migrants

ROME, Nov 3 (Pakistan Point News - APP - 03rd Nov, 2016 ) - Italian police have used beatings and electric shocks, potentially constituting "torture", to coerce migrants into being fingerprinted as Italy cracks under pressure from the EU, Amnesty International said Thursday. "The European Union's pressure on Italy to 'get tough' on refugees and migrants has led to unlawful expulsions and ill-treatment which in some cases may amount to torture," the human rights NGO said in a report.
