USA: Guantánamo, symbol of wider injustice

, Index number: AMR 51/005/2008

It is, however, only one part of a wider detention regime removed from the protection of international law. Hundreds of detainees, for example, remain in indefinite detention without charge or trial as the US airbase at Bagram in Afghanistan, without access to lawyers or the courts.
