End incommunicado detention in Spain

End incommunicado detention in Spain

© Amnesty International

Spain has one of the strictest detention regimes in the European Union

Spanish law allows terrorism suspects to be held incommunicado for up to 13 days. Incommunicado detainees have no effective access to a lawyer or to a doctor of their choice. Their family is not informed that they have been detained.  More than three years later, Mohammed Fahsi remains in detention awaiting trial.  His complaints of torture were never investigated.
