, Index number: AMR 51/050/2007

On 26 March, the first proceeding under the Military Commission Act (MCA) is due to take place at Guantánamo with the arraignment of Australian detainee David Hicks. Another 23 detainees of 13 nationalities have currently been identified as potential defendants for trial by military commission. Amnesty International does not believe that trials under the MCA will meet international standards of fairness.
