FN’s Tortur Komite beder USA om at lukke Guantanamo

“Hemmelige fængsler er i sig selv tortur og en umenneskelig og nedværdigende straf” siger komiteen. 

 Og hvad har de så lige tænkt sig, man skal gøre med en samling livsfarlige terrorister?

Om komiteen:

The Committee against Torture was established pursuant to article 17 of the Convention to monitor its implementation.

The 10-member Committee began to function on 1 January 1988, six months after the entry into force of the Convention, adopted by the United Nations General Assembly on 10 December 1984. States parties to the Convention must report to the Committee one year after the entry into force of the Convention for the State party concerned. Thereafter, report should be submitted every four years. The Committee examines the reports and issues concluding observations in which it includes its main findings and makes recommendations to the State party. In addition to the reporting procedure, the Convention establishes three other mechanisms through which the Committee performs its monitoring functions: the inquiry procedure, the examination of inter-state complaints and the examination of individual complaints. The Committee meets in Geneva and normally holds two sessions per year.

Uafhængige eksperter? Uafhængige af hvad? EN uafhænigig kineser og ægypter? Er det tilladt at grine højt? Og er det en enstemmig mening, rapporten giver udtryk for?

  1. hvilken nationalitet synes du så, man skal have for at være uafhængig?

    Dansk? Nå nej – det dur nok ikke, så ville alle de arabiske bloggere skrive ligesom dig.

    Mine chancer for nogensinde at få mig en karriere som “uafhængig ekspert” er åbenbart ødelagt fra starten… øv

  2. Nogle af landene er vel ikke ligefrem kendt som de store demokratier? Og repræsentanter for sådanne lande – hvem repræsenterer de?
