Denmark: Forcible return / torture and other ill-treatment

By AI International Secretariat, , Index number: EUR 18/003/2008

The Danish authorities are preparing to forcibly return four men to Iraq, where they would be in danger of human rights abuses including torture or death. Denmark is a state party to a number of treaties that expressly prohibit them from returning anyone to a country where they would face this kind of danger. The men are held in Vestre Fængsel prison, in the capital, Copenhagen.
