The US must protect Habeas Corpus

Oxford think tank welcomes US Supreme Court ruling on Guantánamo Bay

(Oxford, 12 June 2008) Recognizing the fundamental values of human civilization, the core obligations in international law and the US Constitution, and the essential interests of the United States, the US President and the US Congress should now fully comply with and completely refrain from attempts at circumventing the US Supreme Court’s restoration of habeas corpus in Boumediene v. Bush, while globally and permanently upholding the highest human, legal, civil, and political rights, including renouncing torture and other cruel, inhuman, or degrading treatment or punishment, and immediately closing Guantánamo Bay and all other parts of its global detention network, says a think tank based in Oxford.
