The Security with Human Rights campaign fights for individuals who have been tortured or unlawfully detained, and also works to uphold the rights of victims of armed groups.
Currently, Amnesty is campaigning for the following cases:
Maher Arar suffered torture because of the actions of U.S. officials. An apology is long overdue. Urge President Obama and Congress to apologize to Maher Arar and fulfill his right to remedy.
Guantanamo detainee Shaker Aamer has been held without charge for over 10 years. Indefinite detention is a human rights violation: The U.S. must either charge Aamer with a crime or release him.
Walid Yunis Ahmad
End indefinite detention in Iraq: Call on authorities in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq to immediately release Walid Yunis Ahmad.
Call on Swaziland to ensure Wandile Dludlu's right to remedy for torture and unlawful detention, including access to justice, compensation and guarantees of non-repetition.
Adnan Farhan Abdul Latif has been held in Guantánamo without charge or trial for more than eight years. Amnesty International remains seriously concerned about Abdul Latif's physical and psychological well-being.
Saeed Mohammed Saleh Hatim remains detained in Guanánamo without charge or trial after eight years, despite the fact that a US federal judge ordered his release in 2009. The Obama administration has appealed the judge's ruling. Urge the administration to drop the appeal, and to immediately release Saeed Hatim.
Fawzi al-Odah and Fayiz al-Kandari
Guantanamo detainees Fawzi al-Odah and Fayiz al-Kandari have been held without charge for nine years. The Kuwaiti government has requested their return. Urge the US to charge or release them.
Sudanese national Hamad al-Neyl Abu Kassawy has been held without charge or trial since his arrest in Saudi Arabia over seven years ago.
