India: Still a ‘Lawless Law’: Detentions under the Jammu and Kashmir Public Safety Act, 1978
In March 2011, Amnesty International published a report which documented the various ways in which the use of the Jammu and Kashmir Public Safety Act, 1978 (PSA) violated international human rights law. This new briefing reviews the impact of the PSA on the human rights of individuals since the publication of that report. It finds that despite legal and policy developments, Amnesty International’s key human rights concerns with the PSA and its application remain unchanged: the PSA is still a ‘Lawless Law’.
