'Accidentally killed during an interrogation' does not mean that the video camcorder suddenly exploded. It probably means that the torturers misjudged the cardiopulmonary health and resilience of their victim. Incompetence and evil form a lethal cocktail. For a State to offer 'Accidentally killed during an interrogation' as an exoneration is beyond belief, with its implied normalisation of torture, and the insulting assumption that others will accept this normalisation. But even in a world as dark as this 'exoneration' requires, producing the body for forensic inspection could provide absolute corroboration of the 'accident'. Continued failure to do so points to something darker still. Meanwhile, UK and USA continue to sell arms to this regime.

Off on my travels again tomorrow, to Muscat, a place I have never visited. Only one overnight then back to Qatar on Saturday night. Normally, I'd be going to Dubai but our little local difficulty rolls on and Dubai can't be accessed from Doha except by stopping off in Muscat or Kuwait or somewhere even further off. Alternatively, there is the option of a 'luxury' coach from Muscat to Dubai, but apparently that takes four hours. It might be a good way to see the country but would take a huge bite out of a short weekend. Note to self: One Omani Rial = Ten Qatari Riyals. Beware of overpaying taxis by a factor of ten!
For less than the price of a pint, and free if you are a Kindle Unlimited subscriber, The Weft is a selection from my poetry files.
