USA: Torture, Enforced Disappearance and Impunity
In clear breach of international law, the US administration has authorized interrogation methods and detention conditions which have in themselves or in combination violated the international prohibition of torture and other cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment. At the same time, the USA has subjected detainees to secret detention, inter-state transfers without due process, enforced disappearance, and indefinite detention without charge or trial. Sanctioned at the highest levels, such human rights violations have been labelled “lawful” by the President and members of his administration.
