United States of America: Response to the proposed "Interrogations Procedures Act"

, رقم الوثيقة: AMR 51/039/2005

In this letter, Amnesty International expresses its strong opposition to the proposed Interrogations Procedures Act. The organization considers that the measures proposed would serve to legalize the kinds of abuses carried out by US forces at Abu Ghraib and elsewhere, not prevent them, and could involve the President in the commission of war crimes. The document urges the US administration to consider that any technique that can be used for "highly coercive interrogation" can be, or become, a form of torture or cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment.
