Canada/USA: Visit to Canada of former US President George W. Bush and Canadian obligations under international law: Amnesty International memorandum to the Canadian authorities

By Amnesty International, , Index number: AMR 51/080/2011

Bush himself – to give rise to an obligation for Canada, should former President Bush proceed with his visit to Canada on or around 20 October 2011, to investigate his alleged involvement in and responsibility for crimes under international law, including torture, and to secure his presence in Canada during that investigation.
