9. dignity: nobility or elevation of character; worthiness:

2. bearing, conduct, or speech indicative of self-respect or appreciation of the formality or gravity of an occasion or situation.

3. elevated rank, office, station, etc.

4. relative standing; rank.

5. a sign or token of respect:

I'm going out on a limb and saying forced imprisonment and treatment to inhuman conditions pretty much doesn't fit the actual definition of dignity. When they impeach you from the bench and lock you up for crimes against humanity... they've pretty much taken away your dignity. You might still have your pride and your own sense of self worth, but most humans with empathy understand they've destroyed your dignity.
