De Balie: Guantanamo Diary

De Balie will host a discussion on January 26 centered around the publication of Guantanamo Diary. Mohamedou Slahi has been imprisoned in Guantánamo since 2002, without being charged. On January 20, his diary will be published worldwide. Following the CIA “Torture Report”, this book also gives insight into the practice of torture by the US and the human rights violations in the “war against terror”. With the help of fragments taken from the book, the discussion at De Balie will consider, among other questions, Europe’s responsibility regarding these human rights violations. European Parliament member Sophie in ‘t Veld, journalist Eelco Bosch van Rosenthal and Lars van Troost from Amnesty International will take part in the discussion.
