End Unlawful Detention In the news

Lack of accountability for ‘war on terror’ torture casts a long shadow over the Middle East

Failure to address UK and US complicity in torture and detention during the war on terror era means these practices have reemerged, including in North East Syria, reports The New Arab.

The North East Syria detention camps increasingly look like a new Guantanamo on an enormous scale, where tens of thousands of men, women and children are indefinitely detained without charge” Reprieve’s joint executive director Maya Foa said.

“Here we see the long shadow of the ‘war on terror’ era: the normalisation of indefinite detention and torture, justified in the name of ‘national security’ when in fact these practices serve neither security nor justice.”
