Amnesty International USA Letter to Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel on Allegations of a Chicago Police Department Facility in Homan Square

February 25, 2015

Amnesty International USA calls on Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel to investigate allegations published in The Guardian newspaper of a Chicago Police Department facility in Homan Square, including beatings and disappearances of people detained there.

Under US and international law there is a responsibility to ensure that human rights violations are not committed within the city and that, when human rights violations do occur, victims’ rights to truth, accountability justice and reparations are fulfilled.
