I don’t know about “inhuman punishment”, but I think it’s ridiculous that a convicted train robber can escape from prison, flee the country, live high on the hog in Brazil for almost forty years, and then return to England penniless on his deathbed to reap the benefits of better health care. It seems pointless to put a 70-year-old man in jail again, but it also seems pretty fair.
