Under the Military Commissions Act (MCA), non-citizens in US custody are stripped of fundamental rights and justice is discarded.

Help Free 14-Year-Old Boy Tortured to Confess (Egypt: UA 197/16)
Egypt’s National Security Agency subjected 14-year-old Aser Mohamed to enforced disappearance for 34 days. The boy claims that he was tortured and ill-treated to confess to offences he did not commit. He is at risk of an unfair trial based on his “confessions” obtained under torture. If convicted he could face up to 15 years imprisonment.
Amnesty International is concerned about the fairness of proceedings leading to the trial and conviction of Leonard Peltier, an Ashinabe-Lakota Native American who was convicted of murdering two FBI agents.
