ISC Inquiry on the treatment of detainees

JUSTICE joined a group of prominent UK and international NGOs in writing to the Chair of the Intelligence and Security Committee (“ISC”), to indicate that we would not be participating in their inquiry on the treatment of detainees alleged to have been tortured.

While we are concerned that these allegations must be properly investigated – in keeping with the UK’s obligations in international law – the ISC, like the Gibson inquiry before it, lacks the powers or the independence necessary to complete such an investigation.

Read our letter to the ISC.
