Human Rights and Terror Suspects

Should terror suspects be entitled to claim human rights while  beeing in custody like other criminals??

The “presumption of innocence” which is the hallmark of criminal jurisprudence and, thus, a natural consequence is that every accused is clothed with the presumption of innocence and entitled to just, fair and decent trial and the aim of the criminal trial is not humiliating or harassing an accused, but to determine the guilty of the innocence.

Yes, agreed.

Humanrights is concerned only with the legitimate right to an individual and do not classify the offence or act committed. Any punshment could be meted out with due process set forth  by law alone.

Dear Neha, prisoners are not vegetables nor to be treated like an animals and they should not be condemned until their guilt is proved by evidence as ponted out by Sunderraj. For prisoners human rights and duties and functions of law enforcing authorities checked my files for International instruments governing those related matters.
