USA: Five years on 'the dark side': A look back at 'war on terror' detentions

, Index number: AMR 51/195/2006

In this document Amnesty International continues to press for the closure of Guantánamo and the ending of secret detentions and renditions. Human rights organizations support the tireless efforts of the US legal community to restore the rule of law. Amnesty International will continue to call on Congress to establish a full commission of inquiry into the USA's "war on terror" detention policies and practices, to repeal or substantially amend the Military Commissions Act and to amend the Detainee Treatment Act, as well as to withdraw treaty reservations and seal loopholes for torture and other ill-treatment.
