Denmark: Court forces Denmark to compensate 18 Iraqis over torture carried out by Iraqi forces.

(Copenhagen)  In 2004 Danish forces were working alongside Iraqi security forces when they arrested 18 Iraqis. During their arrest the 18 arrested people were hit and kicked by their fellow countrymen, at no time did the Danes get involved. However as has been seen many times before, human rights lawyers made a case against the Danes that because they didn't do anything, they themselves were guilty of torture and as such deemed guilty and yesterday a Danish court found in favour of human rights and awarded each of those 18 Iraqi $4,600 for the pain they didn't suffer at the hands of the Danes.

The Danish government is appealing.
