CagePrisoners report on procedural improprieties and abuses of human rights of terrorism suspects within the US federal and penal system.
This report endeavours to provide a comprehensive account of the treatment of terrorism suspects in U.S. federal courts. It documents the systemic human rights abuses and Islamophobia that pervade the criminal justice system at every step: prior to indictment; from indictment through conviction; in sentencing; and inside U.S. prisons.
The report was not written with the purpose of advocating for the use of Military Tribunals. Rather, the author of this report intended to document the many barriers that Muslims accused of terrorism face in receiving fair and legal treatment within the federal criminal justice system.
