Today, Physicians for Human Rights has filed the following complaint to the Office of Human Research Protections at the Department of Health and Human Services. Joining PHR in filing this complaint are: Amnesty International USA, Bill of Rights Defense Committee, Center for Constitutional Rights, Center for Victims of Torture, Human Rights Watch, National Religious Campaign Against Torture and Psychologists for Social Responsibility.
UPDATE 6/15: By an unfortunate oversight, the Network of Concerned Anthropologists was left off the original complaint though they were one of PHR’s first partners in this campaign. It is a pleasure to acknowledge NCA’s support.
UPDATE 6/10: International Rehabilatation Council for Torture Victims has joined the complaint.
