New York lawyer Emanuel Zeltser awoke on a private plane headed for a KGB-monitored detention center in Belarus last March. His last memory before waking was drinking coffee at a London cafe. Since then, he's been held at three prison facilities in the former Soviet country, deprived of medications and physically tortured. He is now languishing in a KGB penal colony. It sounds like a nightmare, but these are the details in a complaint filed by Patton Boggs lawyers with the United Nations Human Rights Committee.
