Chinese police have been told they can no longer torture prisoners for confessions, state media reported yesterday.

Threats and deception are also banned, under the new public security ministry regulations. Any evidence obtained through their use will be disregarded. The rules are part of a government attempt to lay down at least in theory the basics of a constitutional rule of law and to adopt more liberal practices on social issues.;$sessionid$FZF1ZRVHO4N1ZQFIQMFSFFOAVCBQ0IV0?xml=/news/2003/09/11/wchin11.xml&sSheet=/news/2003/09/11 /ixworld.html

Today they ban torture, maybe tomorrow they will free Tibet!

I know China has been trying to become socially like other nations. This is a start.
