USA: The 10th anniversary of “Law of War” detentions at Guantánamo: Amnesty International written statement to the 19th session of the UN Human Rights Council (27 February – 23 March 2012)

By Amnesty International, , Index number: AMR 51/011/2012

There has been no human rights progress with respect to the system of indefinite military detention without charge or fair trial at the US Naval Base at Guantánamo Bay in Cuba in the three years since the USA sought election to the Human Rights Council. Detentions at the base are now into their 11th year. Amnesty International urges the USA to inform the Council regularly of its steps to close the Guantánamo facility and end the human-rights-violating practices it has come to symbolize.
