CCL condemns Guantanamo Bay
The NSW Council for Civil Liberties has consistently condemned
the unlawful detention without charge of hundreds of people,
including minors, by the US military at Guantanamo Bay.
CCL also condemns the military commissions set up by US
President Bush's Executive
Order to try the
non-US detainees in Guantanamo Bay, like David Hicks.
The Rule of Law is fundamental to our society. No one
stands above the law - not the terrorist, not the government,
not the military.
You can read the Law
Council of Australia's final report on the military commissions (July 2007).
You can also read the Law
Council of Australia's official report on the unfair trial
process (September 2004) under which David Hicks
will be tried.
