Will China lead the way to stop impunity?

Media has recently reported that a number of Chinese officials stand trial, after torturing a man to death during an investigation. Hopefully, the trial will be a landmark for stopping impunity for such horrible interrogation methods and also find an answer to who approved the use of torture. Prosecuting only low-ranked officials is not enough. Also political heavyweights must be accountable for their actions.

The world is also waiting for such trials to one day be held in other countries, which are believed to have tortured captives. Sadly, the list of such countries is long, and also includes countries normally called democracies.
