French counterterrorism system
For years, only US and Guantánamo have been critisized worldwide. Now, it’s France’s turn. HRW has accused France of violating human rights, because suspects can be detained only on grounds of a vague link to terrorism and because they can face long periods of detention before trial and some hace actually suffered physical violence during interrogation.
Meanwhile, the French Interior Minister has announced 13-year-old will be filed, if suspected of commiting crimes, because minors’ criminal life is evolving, specially regarding urban violence.
