    1. If corporations are 'people' with religious rights, why aren’t Guantanamo prisoners?

      Last week, the US Supreme Court ruled that companies are ‘people,’ entitled to the same religious freedoms that people enjoy. Yet at the same time, the US Government is arguing that some actual people are legally not people when it comes to religious rights.

    3. Botched lethal injections debunk the myth of 'humane' execution

      After the botched execution of Clayton Lockett in Oklahoma last month, some commentators have sought to blame 'Europe' for the disturbing, drawn-out deaths by lethal injection that we're seeing in some US states.

    4. Guantanamo's sinister re-branding of force-feeding

      The PR team at Guantanamo Bay have been engaging in a campaign of smoke and mirrors of late to try and cover up the abuse that still remains at Guantanamo Bay. Their latest effort is a rather sinister rebranding of prisoners peacefully protesting their detention by going on hunger strike.

    5. Government puts forward legal aid proposals which would deny justice to torture victims

      The Government has today (Monday 31 March) put forward measures for the approval of MPs which would introduce a "residence test" requirement for legal aid. As we explained previously, this would deny justice to a wide range of people wronged by the UK Government – from victims of torture and rendition to Gurkhas and Afghan interpreters denied the right to settle in Britain.

    1. Libyan renditions case in court as UK ‘lobbies for secrecy’ in key torture report

      The case brought by a husband and wife subjected to a 2004 ‘rendition,’ jointly organised by MI6, the CIA and Libyan intelligence, is being heard today by the Court of Appeal in London.

    2. Questions for UK Government over claims “heavy weather” destroyed renditions evidence

      Claims made by the Government that possible evidence of UK involvement in renditions held in Diego Garcia was damaged by “extremely heavy weather” last month have been questioned by legal charity Reprieve, in the light of independent weather records suggesting there was no heavy rain during the period.

    3. BT indifferent to supporting US drone programme “as long as they pay our bills”

      Telecoms firm BT today dismissed questions over its provision of support to the US’ covert drone programme, stating that it “does not look at what its customers do” with its equipment, and adding that “we sell our services to governments as long as they pay our bills.”

    4. Guantanamo nurse refused to participate in "criminal" force-feedings

      A military medical professional at Guantanamo Bay recently refused to force-feed detainees after witnessing the suffering it caused detainees, it has been revealed.

    5. Government’s legal aid plans “unlawful” & “discriminatory,” rule judges

      British judges today ruled that a proposed cut to legal aid known as the ‘residence test’ is “unlawful” and “discriminatory.” The measure, which was pushed through the Commons without a debate last Wednesday (9 July), would block anyone not resident in the UK from receiving legal aid. This would mean that people who had been wronged by the UK Government – such as victims of rendition and torture – could be shut out of court, unless they are very wealthy.
