USA: See no evil: Government turns the other way as judges make findings about torture and other abuse
As this report outlines, a number of federal and military judges have pointed to human rights violations committed by the USA in the name of countering terrorism while declining to take the issue further. Amnesty International is calling on all such officials to meet their obligations. Any collective failure by the judges, prosecutors, and other government lawyers involved in these cases to refer evidence of enforced disappearance, torture and other ill-treatment on to the appropriate authorities would constitute independent violations by the USA of its obligations under international human rights law.
