Freedom from Torture: A risk category in itself?

Human Rights Watch and a proxy terror front group -Freedom from Torture, clamored that the flights should be suspended because some ‘ethnic’ Tamils were subjected to cruel treatment in the island nation.
This is what the Sri Lankan government’s own Ministry of Defence has to say about the charity Freedom for Torture (FfT). The link to the relevant Ministry of Defence website page can be found here.

In addition to the many resources referred to in recent posts relating to the charter flight to Sri Lanka this week, it may be useful for those drafting JR grounds to note that those who have been assessed and/or examined by FfT may fall within a further risk category simply as a result of that.
