USA: Judge refuses to dismiss charges against former secret detainee, says remedy for torture or other abuses must be sought elsewhere
It is more than three years since the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) sent the US authorities its report about the treatment of 14 men who had been held in secret detention by the USA for up to four and a half years. Enforced disappearance and torture are crimes under international law. In the case of the USA’s secret detention program, however, the prospects for accountability and remedy seem as remote as ever.
