How true are British sailors' TV 'confessions' ?

Are those detained British sailors whose 'confessions' are shown on Iranian TV suffering from Stockholm Syndrome or being put under threats, coercion or other forms of undue influence by their captors? I really have no idea at all.

Those who are interested should perhaps re-direct the questions to ex-IGP Haniff Omar or those who handled cases of 'Surrendered Enemy Personnel' (SEP) during the 'Emergency' or 'Soviet spies in Umno' in the 1970s before for more authoritative exploration of the possibilities and hypotheses under such circumstances or situations.

Tehran says all 15 UK personnel have ' confessed '

Iran should free UK sailors, Security Council says

Its still a raging controversy that the British soldiers should be pulled out of Iraq anyway. But Iran's actions are not winning them any friends.
As for the "confessions". Everyone has a breaking point, it doesn't even have to be the usual beating and physical pain. There are many ways to break a person and make them say what you want them to say. As Malaysia's Special Branch knows very well.
