Case Detail

In re Military Commission Instruction
(Regulatory Proceeding)
WLF urged the U.S. Department of Defense to tighten the provisions of its proposed list of crimes to be tried before military tribunals. The proposal applies to captive Al Qaeda and Taliban members, Iraqi military leaders and soldiers, and other U.S. enemies who may be tried for war crimes in a military tribunal. While supportive of the Pentagon's proposal overall, WLF argued for certain provisions to be revised to avoid the inadvertent creation of legal weapons that would benefit accused terrorists and war criminals.
Case Status:
Awaiting Department of Defense action.
