USA: From ill-treatment to unfair trial. The case of Mohammed Jawad, child ‘enemy combatant’
This report traces the development, authorization and use of “counter-resistance” techniques in Guantánamo and how the conditions the USA attached to its ratification of human rights treaties prohibiting torture and other ill-treatment left loopholes that were exploited by the US administration in its resort to such techniques. In examining the question of Mohammed Jawad’s ill-treatment and the context in which it occurred, the report also notes how the US authorities deliberately blurred the detention and interrogation functions thereby undermining a fundamental safeguard against torture and other ill-treatment.
