Amnesty Int’l: Principles, Rights Sacrificed in Terror War
Posted on May 23, 2006
In its annual report, Amnesty International writes that Western governments have “paralysed international institutions and squandered public resources in pursuit of narrow security interests.”
Governments have sacrificed principles and ignored human rights in the name of the “war on terror”, says a leading rights group in its annual report.
But Amnesty International celebrates what it calls a “wake-up call” issued to governments over the last year.
It says their “doublespeak and deception have been exposed by the media, challenged by activists and rejected by the courts.”
