The eminent jurists are part of an independent group of eight jurists appointed by the International Commission of Jurists (ICJ) to examine the global impact of the fight against terrorism on human rights and humanitarian law. The hearing was the third in a series of hearings taking place in all regions of the world this year. Similar hearings were held earlier this year in Colombia and East Africa. The next hearings will be held in Belfast and London on 19-26 April.
