    I have a problem with "hung". generally , in french "pendre" is to hang to death, so it is difficult to be tortured after being hung. So I used suspendre , which may be like to hang to a hook. But I am not really satisfied. what do you mean by hang ?

    so, I would say:
    après avoir été suspendu, torturé et avoir subi beaucoup d'horribles épreuves

    by the way:
    je suis essayer a dire: :cross: ( j'essaye de dire , je veux essayer de dire )

    est-ce que c'est vrai? = is that true?
    est-ce que c'est bon? = is that right?

    he is first hung, which does not actually kill him. The protagonist later finds him being tortured in a gang of slaves on a ship.
    Sorry I do realise it sounds strange

    so you could add laissé pour mort that precises that the people who hung them thought that he was dead, whereas he was not

    après avoir été pendu, laissé pour mort ...
