59 min.DK/Documentary

In Iraq, an American lieutenant colonel puts a gun to a prisoner's head, forcing him to reveal his assassination plans. The officer saves his men but is later tried by a military court. In the UK, former home secretary Jack Straw is confronted with numerous examples of violence and abuse in British prisons. But improving conditions for prisoners doesn't bring in votes. In The Hague, the Human Rights Court finds a former Bosnian soldier guilty, even though circumstances forced him to commit war crimes. In Frankfurt, a German police officer physically threatens a kidnapper to save a small child in a case that divides the nation.
