The English Method: UK taught modern torture to Brazil’s dictators | Boing Boing


Brazil’s 21-year military dictatorship was a torturing, brutal regime — among their victims was the current president, Dilma Rousseff. At first, the generals tortured by flogging and shocks, but British officials taught them to torture without leaving marks, helping the regime to rehabilitate its international human rights image. The techniques the UK taught to Brazil’s torturers were developed for Malay rebels and perfected on Northern Irish Republicans, and these techniques came to be known as „The English Method.“


Other governments — Germany, France, Panama, and, of course, the USA — also trained Brazil’s torturers, but the UK methods were the best.
