Problem

Intergovernmental exchange on torture methods

Claim:
Refugees are often denied asylum because they have no wounds or scars on their bodies to prove their claims of torture. However, European manufacturers of torture weapons have been asked to produced weapons that leave no scars. How terribly convenient. Refugees that show up on our doorstep may have fled war-torn countries where both sides use European weapons of war and have been subject to torture devices which leave no physical trace.
