United Kingdom: Briefing on the Terrorism Bill
The UK government has issued, for parliamentary debate, the "Terrorism Bill" in which it seeks to introduce -- into permanent legislation -- provisions which either directly contravene international human rights treaties to which UK is a party, or may result in human rights violations. Most of them are present in current emergency or temporary legislation, which in the past facilitated serious abuse of human rights, extensively documented by the organization throughout the years. As a result, Amnesty International has grave concerns about this Bill.
