El Fascismo como
fin político : Benito Mussolini, il Duce

Martín Maytín

El 23 de marzo de
1919, es fundado en Milán por Benito Mussolini un movimiento político social
denominado Fascios di Combattimento, que a pesar de las múltiples desgracias y
ruina a la que condujo a la nación italiana, se ha convertido —especialmente
para grupos minoritarios clasistas y racistas— en una teoría o ideología para
hacer y ejercer la política y el gobierno. A esta tendencia se le ha denominado
Fascismo. Este partido no nació basado en una doctrina previamente estructurada
sino por una necesidad de acción, agrupando a elementos de diversas tendencias
políticas.

M@: Fachos del mundo, uníos.

Human rights in Iraq:
a case to answer

Revealed: How Lord Goldsmith advised Army chiefs to deny
detainees ‘full’ legal protection

By Robert Verkaik, Law Editor

Published: 29 May
2007

 

The Attorney General, Lord Goldsmith, is facing accusations
that he told the Army its soldiers were not bound by the Human Rights Act when
arresting, detaining and interrogating Iraqi prisoners.

 

Previously confidential emails, seen by The Independent,
between London and British military
head-quarters in Iraq
soon after the start of the war suggest Lord Goldsmith’s advice was to adopt a
"pragmatic" approach when handling prisoners and it was not necessary
to follow the " higher standards" of the protection of the Human
Rights Act.

 

That, according to human rights lawyers, was tantamount to
the Attorney General advising the military to ignore the Human Rights Act and
to simply observe the Geneva Conventions. It was also contrary to advice given
by the Army’s senior lawyer in Iraq,
who urged higher standards to be met.

 

Today, rights groups and experts in international law will
call on the Government to disclose Lord Goldsmith’s legal opinion, which they
say could have helped create a culture of abuse of Iraqis by British soldiers.

 

Last month, the first British soldier convicted of a war
crime was jailed for a year and dismissed from the Army after being convicted
of mistreating Iraqi civilians, including the hotel worker Baha Mousa, who died
of his injuries at the hands of British soldiers. In 2005, three British
soldiers were jailed by a court martial in Germany
after "trophy" photographs emerged, showing Iraqi detainees being
abused at an aid centre called Camp Bread Basket. There are about 60 more
allegations of abuse being prepared for legal claims by rights groups.

 

Last week, Parliament’s Joint Committee on Human Rights
wrote to the Government to ask for an "explanation" about the
evidence of torture in the Baha Mousa court martial.

 

Andrew Dismore MP, chair of the committee, said: "We
have asked the Ministry of Defence to explain what appear to be stark
inconsistencies in the evidence presented to our committee about the use of
inhuman and degrading interrogation techniques prohibited as long ago as
1972."

 

But emails sent just after the invasion indicate Lord
Goldsmith’s belief that British soldiers in Iraq
were not bound by the Human Rights Act. The documents also show a wide
differing of opinion between him and Lieutenant-Colonel Nicholas Mercer, the
Army’s most senior legal adviser on the ground, who wrote to say he felt
"the ECHR would apply" to troops in Iraq.

 

On one occasion, Rachel Quick, the legal adviser to
Permanent Joint Headquarters who had regularly sought and been given guidance
from Lord Goldsmith on the treatment of Iraqi prisoners, wrote to Colonel
Mercer giving her interpretation of the Attorney General’s advice. His view,
she said, "was that the HRA was only intended to protect rights conferred
by the Convention and must look to international law to determine the scope of
those rights".

 

Ms Quick went on say that the advice of the Attorney
General, supported by Professor Christopher Greenwood [the barrister who
advised Lord Goldsmith on the legality of the war], was that, in the
circumstances, the HRA did not apply. "For your purposes," she wrote,
"I would suggest this means no requirement for you to provide guidance on
the application of the HRA. I hope this is clear."

 

Ms Quick, who in November 2003, was appointed OBE, added:
"With regard to the detention of civilians – I will look at your documents
in more detail and discuss with FCO, MoD legal advisers. Although my initial
thoughts are you are trying to introduce UK
procedures to a Geneva Convention IV context. Whilst this may be the perfect
solution it may not be the pragmatic solution. Again we raised this issue with
the AG and got a helpful steer on the procedures. I’ll aim to try to produce
guidance, taking into account their advice on the detention of civilians."

 

Such were the concerns of legal advisers on the ground over
the Attorney General’s views that the MoD arranged for the senior legal adviser
at the Foreign Office, Gavin Hood, to visit Permanent Joint Headquarters to
settle any worries. Crucially, the emails make clear Lord Goldsmith’s legal opinion
was not shared by Colonel Mercer, who contacted his superiors in London
to ask for guidance after he had witnessed the hooding of 40 Iraqis at a
British PoW camp in March. The men were all forced to kneel in the sun and had
their hands cuffed behind their backs. Worried this could leave the soldiers
vulnerable to prosecutions, he told the MoD that in his view soldiers should
behave in accordance with the "higher standard" of the Human Rights
Act.

 

But the response from the military’s Permanent Joint Headquarters
in Qatar was
that Lord Goldsmith had told the MoD the human rights law did not apply and
soldiers should simply observe the Geneva Conventions.

 

When Colonel Mercer said he disagreed with the Government’s
most senior law officer he was told that "perhaps you should put yourself
up as the next Attorney General". Colonel Mercer also asked for a British
judge to be flown out to oversee the procedures for the detention of Iraqi
prisoners, but this also was blocked at a high level.

 

Colonel Mercer’s interpretation of the law has since proved
correct. Thirty months after he first raised his concerns during the Iraq
conflict, the Court of Appeal ruled that British soldiers were bound by the
Human Rights Act, which bans torture or degrading of prisoners.

 

The emails, part of court documents being prepared to
support a judicial review in the High Court this year, reveal considerable
disquiet among the military about the Attorney General’s advice.

 

The documents show that as early as March 2003, the
International Committee of the Red Cross had begun investigating complaints of
possible war crimes by British soldiers at the same PoW camp in south-east Iraq
that had prompted Colonel Mercer’s original intervention. The Government was so
worried about this that it flew out a political adviser from London
to address the Red Cross’s concerns about hooding and other practices.

 

International law

 

* Torture is defined by international law as any threat or
use of severe pain, physical or mental, against an individual with the
intention of obtaining a confession or other information. Under the UN
Convention Against Torture, 40 states – including Britain
– have agreed not to engage in such practices.

 

During military conflict the third and fourth Geneva
Conventions protect prisoners of war and civilians who are held by soldiers.
Torture is also defined as a war crime by the International Criminal Court,
which describes it as the unlawful infliction of severe pain.

 

Many of the incidents of abuse committed by British soldiers
on Iraqi civilians may fall outside the strict definition of torture under
international law.

 

But under the European Convention of Human Rights,
incorporated in the Human Rights Act 1998, there is no requirement that the
threat or use of pain should be severe for an act to fall foul of the law.

 

Lord Goldsmith argued that because UK
forces did not have full control of Iraq,
the country was not part of its jurisdiction and therefore the Human Rights Act
did not apply. He lost this argument when the Court of Appeal ruled that Iraqi
civilians held in custody and the soldiers detaining them were subject to the
Human Rights Act. The case is to be settled later this year by the House of
Lords. If the Government loses then it is expected that full and independent
inquiries will be held into the deaths, disappearances and torture of Iraqis by
British soldiers.
