USA: US War on terror detention policy at the crossroads (Web Feature)

, N° d'index: AMR 51/151/2006

The US Congress is currently considering legislation which would have major implications for the treatment, detention and possible trial of people held in US custody in the "war on terror", and would fail to uphold the USA's international legal obligations. Amnesty International deplores moves to remove or restrict habeas corpus and opposes indefinite detention without charge, and any lowering of fair trial standards.
