Review of U.S. Rendition Practices by the European Court of Human Rights

Tuesday, February 26, 2013 • 12:15 PM • Law School 4045Duke Law Events

The European Court of Human Rights recently awarded damages to Khaled El-Masri against Macedonia for the country's participation in a CIA rendition and torture. El-Masri, a German citizen and a car salesman in Germany, was never shown to have any terrorist connections. His detention and mistreatment was likely the result of a mistake involving a similarity between his name and that of a CIA target. The Court found that El-Masri's rendition was "a particularly grave" violation of basic human rights. Henrikas Mickevicius, lawyer and Director of the Human Rights Monitoring Institute in Vilnius, Lithuania, is presenting a lecture on Review of U.S. Rendition Practices by the European Court of Human Rights on Tuesday, February 26 at 12:15 p.m. in Room 4045. Burritos will be provided. For more information, contact cronce@law.duke.edu. This lunch event is co-sponsored by the Center for International & Comparative Law and The Center for Law, Ethics and National Security.
