Guantanamo | Guernica 37

In Guantanamo, members of Guernica 37 worked as part of the defence team in the main 9/11 terrorism trial and drafted legal memoranda on the use of evidence obtained through torture under international law, on the application of international humanitarian law in national and international tribunals and on the legality of war crimes charges before the U.S. Military Commissions.

Guernica 37 authored a report on the UK legislation concerning penalties for unauthorised disclosures of information that became part of an amicus curiae coordinated by the Open Society Justice Initiative and was submitted to the U.S. Army Court of Criminal Appeals in PFC Chelsea Manning’s case. Finally, members of Guernica 37 pioneered litigation strategies to challenge cyber-surveillance targeting journalists and human rights defenders.
