Detention of sixteen days before being brought before a judge was not the prompt judicial intervention which could effectively lead to the detection and prevention of ill-treatment, there being a risk that this would be inflicted on detained persons, particularly with a view to extracting confessions from them. Taking all acts of violence against the applicant's person together, and having regard to the length of time for which the acts of violence lasted and their purpose to extract a confession, they had been particularly serious and cruel, so that they must have caused “acute” pain and suffering so as to warrant the classification of torture. Moreover, after more than eight years there had been no thorough and effective investigation of the plausible allegations of ill-treatment while in police custody. However, the intensity and frequency of the interrogations should or could have caused applicant to realise of what he was suspected.
