AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL - Diary Note - 18 November 2005
Amnesty International and Reprieve will hold a press conference on Friday 18
November in London to announce the biggest ever gathering of former "war on
terror" detainees who are coming together over the weekend to condemn an
increasingly globalised network of torture.
Amnesty International's Secretary General, Irene Khan and Reprieve's Legal
Director Clive Stafford Smith will show how a subversive operation of secret
detentions, renditions, "disappearances" and diplomatic assurances has
fuelled torture and undermined security.
Former detainees from around the world and international legal and medical
experts will highlight the brutal effects on individuals and the blatant
illegality of such practices.
When: Friday 18 November, 10am (10.00 GMT)
Where: Human Rights Action Centre, Amnesty International UK, 17-25 New Inn
Yard (Shoreditch), London EC2
