UN special envoy on torture calls for end of Brian’s solitary confinement

Brian K. (25), also known under the pseudonym “Carlos”, became a nationally known criminal because of a special setting. Brian has spent most of the years behind bars since he was a teenager. He is currently in custody in the Pöschwies prison, where, according to experts called in by his father, he has to endure torture.

Meanwhile, Nils Melzer (51) has also become aware of Brian. The Swiss lawyer and UN special rapporteur on torture since 2016 describes Brian’s long solitary confinement as “inhuman”, like that NZZ reported.
