Medel statement on torture in Iraq

IraqMarch, 2007

Abduction and detention in illegal prisons have nothing to do with international judicial and police cooperation in criminal matters; they rather represent outright violation of fundamental Human Rights.

The Judiciary must be independent and shall intervene when serious violations of Human Rights appear to have been perpetrated.

The respect for these principles is at the heart of Western Democracies, it lends them legitimacy in the fight against international terrorism.
