Amnesty on KSM « The Washington Independent

Jul 31, 2020
Amnesty International’s statement on the KSM guilty plea:
“Amnesty International USA believes that the victims of the attacks of 9/11 have a right to justice, and the guilty plea of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and some of his co-defendants does not provide real justice nor the truth. The organization has stated that the military commission system is fundamentally flawed. Any guilty pleas arising from its proceedings do not legitimize these trials. A guilty plea could only be accepted if it was made in a fair trial conducted under procedures that adhere to domestic and international standards, such as a U.S. federal court. Amnesty International continues its calls for all the detainees in Guantanamo to be either released or retried in U.S. federal courts.”
