IRCT supports prosecution and investigation of Bush for torture

The IRCT supports the private prosecution of former U.S. President George W. Bush for the torture of four individuals by U.S. officials during their detention in Guantánamo. We, along with the other signatories of this letter, seek a criminal investigation and prosecution of Mr. Bush upon his arrival in Canada for violations against the Canadian criminal code and the UN Convention against Torture, of which Canada has ratified.

Read our full statement and the letter (PDF) we signed in conjunction with about 50 other non-governmental organisations.
