Call for action against the use of diplomatic assurances in transfers to risk of torture and ill-treatment

In May 2005, the ICJ and other rights groups issued a joint statement on the increasing use of diplomatic assurances by States as the basis for the transfer of alleged terrorist suspects in countries where they seriously risk torture or ill-treatment.

The statement was issued by the following NGOs: ICJ, Amnesty International, Association for the Prevention of Torture, Human Rights Watch, International Federation of Action by Christians for the Abolition of Torture, International Federation for Human Rights, International Helsinki Federation for Human Rights, and World Organisation Against Torture.
