UK: Joint NGO letter to the Solicitor to the Detainee Inquiry
In this response, Amnesty International and other non-governmental organizations express their view that an Inquiry conducted in the way described and in accordance with the Protocol would not comply with Article 3 of the European Convention on Human Rights. The organizations are particularly disappointed that the issue of what material may be disclosed to the public will not be determined independently of Government and, further, that there will be no meaningful participation of the former and current detainees and other interested third parties.
