Letter to President Juncker: A five point plan for human rights (17/07/2014) One of our primary hopes for the future is that you will be an EU champion for human rights through leading by example and ensuring that all Commissioners use their political power and all available instruments to hold EU member states to account when failing to uphold EU legislation to the detriment of the enjoyment of human rights within the EU.

Jean-Claude Juncker, President of the European Commission

EU must address use of prolonged solitary confinement in the United States (17/07/2014) The United States (US) government’s callous and dehumanising practice of holding prisoners in prolonged solitary confinement in the country’s only federal super-maximum security (supermax) prison amounts to cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment and is in violation of international law.
