Guantanamo: Hicks disgrace should now end
Hicks disgrace should now end - Brown
Minister's decision to back David Hicks' imprisonment
Guantanamo Bay broke Australian and International law: it is a disgrace which should end now the US Supreme Court has ruled against Military Commissions trying the inmates", Greens Leader Bob Brown said today.
"The Howard Government, backed by the Labor Opposition, recognised these illegal Military Commissions in the 2004 Transfer of Prisoners Act, a recognition which the Greens strenuously opposed," Senator Bob Brown said.
"The Commissions eroded the basic tenets of Australian law. The Prime Minister has dishonoured this nation's law and its traditions. Hicks should be brought home immediately", Senator Brown said.
