In a 15-page report published Friday, the panel says torture and other forms of ill-treatment are still practiced by police and that other officials in China go unpunished.

...are useful things, so long as they are genuine and help the offender to avoid similar behaviors in the future. But, of course, that seldom happens, so what's the point? Will the U.S. apologize for 1.8 million civilian deaths in Vietnam or the murder of more than 1 milllion during General Suharto's Indonesian *coup de tat* in 1965, or for Iraq, etc. The call to apologize unfortunately frequently serves as a cloak for hidden interests.
