Two legal rights groups recently requested that the United Nations conduct an investigation into allegations targeting officials in the United States and Spain who reportedly conspired to block criminal probes into the authorization of illegal killings and torture of suspected terrorists during the Bush administration.
The request was made by the Center for Constitutional Rights, based out of New York, along with the European Center for Constitutional and Human Rights out of Berlin.
According to McClatchy, the request was made to the United Nations’ special rapporteur for judicial independence.
The two groups say that the United States interfered with the Spanish justice system in three separate criminal cases and they asked the UN to demand that both the Spanish and American governments cease their meddling in court cases.
