IFDHR and AOHRUK submit communication to the ICC on widespread and systematic torture in Palestine:





Guernica 37 have been engaged by the Government of Pakistan to investigate a Pakistani group located in the United Kingdom (with offices in the United States of America, Canada and across the EU), and to prepare an investigative report to file with the Metropolitan Police Counter Terrorism Command, Crown Prosecution Service of England and Wales, foreign law enforcement and prosecutorial authorities into a series of allegations including murder, enforced disappearance, extortion, money laundering and/or proceeds of crime, incitement to commit acts of violence and to engage in terrorist activities.


In addition, Toby Cadman, co-founder of Guernica 37 represented the former president Pervez Musharraf in treason trial and was instructed by the Panama JIT directly for his services to deal with its affairs linked with the Mutual Legal Assistance.




Guernica 37 members ensured the extradition from the USA to Peru of two members of the military - Major Telmo Hurtado Hurtado and Juan Manuel Rivera Rondón - involved in the Accomarca massacre, an emblematic case that materialised the victims’ hopes for justice in the context of the Truth Commission and the Peruvian transition.



Work of Guernica 37 led to the conviction of Alberto Fujimori, who served as President of Peru (1990-2000). This was the longest and costliest legal case in the country’s history and was seen as a landmark case, since it was the first time that an elected Latin American Head of State faced trial in his own country for human rights violations. In 2009, he was sentenced to 25 years of imprisonment.

Members of Guernica 37 appeared before the Istanbul High Court in a case concerning the attack on the ‘Mavi Marmara’ Flotilla by Israeli Defence Forces. The attack took place in May 2010 in international waters and led to the death of nine people and the injuring of countless civilians. The fact-finding mission concluded that a series of violations of international law, including international humanitarian and human rights law, were committed by the Israeli forces during the interception of the flotilla and during the detention of passengers in Israel prior to deportation.
