Djamel Beghal

Djamel Beghal is a French-Algerian abducted in the United Arab Emirates in July 2001. He was subjected to several types of torture and forced into confessions. Beghal was then sent to France where he stood trial. Even though, the Court explicitly stated that no evidence of the preparation of any plot had been recovered, except the statements he made under duress, Beghal was sentenced to ten years in prison. After his release, his ordeal did not end as he was reincarcerated.
