REDRESS made a written submission to the UN Human Rights Committee (UNHRC) for its July 2015 examination of the UK’s 7th Periodic Report under the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR). Our submission raises concerns including: the UK’s retreat from its previous assurance of an independent judge-led inquiry into complicity in torture allegations; the fresh allegations which have arisen concerning the UK’s knowledge of the USA’s use of Diego Garcia during the USA’s extraordinary rendition programme and allegations concerning UK renditions in and from Iraq. REDRESS also recommended that the UK adopt a comprehensive, consistent and transparent anti-torture policy grounded in applicable international standards.
