    Amnesty International on Thursday urged Ethiopia, Tanzania and Zambia to arrest former US president George W. Bush for violating international torture laws, during his African tour this week.

    Bush is touring the countries through to Monday to promote efforts to fight cervical and breast cancers, and Amnesty said the three nations have an obligation to arrest him under international law.

    "All countries to which George W. Bush travels have an obligation to bring him to justice for his role in torture," said Amnesty's senior legal adviser Matt Pollard.

    "International law requires that there be no safe haven for those responsible for torture; Ethiopia, Tanzania and Zambia must seize this opportunity to fulfil their obligations and end the impunity George W. Bush has so far enjoyed."

    "Amnesty International recognizes the value of raising awareness about cervical and breast cancer in Africa, the stated aim of the visit, but this cannot lessen the damage to the fight against torture caused by allowing someone who has admitted to authorising water-boarding to travel without facing the consequences prescribed by law," the group said in a statement.

    Amnesty made a similar appeal to Canada in October when Bush visited British Columbia for an economic summit.

    The group claimed Bush authorised the use of "enhanced interrogation techniques" and "waterboarding" on detainees held in secret by the Central Intelligence Agency between 2002 and 2009.

    Amnesty's case relies on the public record, US documents obtained through access to information requests, Bush's own memoir and a Red Cross report critical of the US's war on terror policies.

    Amnesty cites several instances of alleged torture of detainees at the Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, naval facility, in Afghanistan and in Iraq, by the US military.

    The cases include that of Zayn al Abidin Muhammed Husayn (known as Abu Zubaydah) and 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, both arrested in Pakistan. The two men were waterboarded a total of 266 times from 2002 to 2003, according to the CIA inspector general, cited by Amnesty.

    Naona wanadai akamatwe lakini sijaona pahali wakisema apelekwe wapi akishakamatwa.

    [h=1][/h][h=2]AFRICAN COUNTRIES SHOULD SEIZE PRESIDENT 'RESPONSIBLE FOR TORTURE'[/h]

    [FONT=arial, verdana, sans-serif][/FONT](NEWSER) – George W. Bush should be arrested for his role in waterboarding, Amnesty International says, and his trip to Africa presents an opportunity for that. “International law requires that there be no safe haven for those responsible for torture; Ethiopia, Tanzania and Zambia must seize this opportunity to fulfill their obligations and end the impunity George W. Bush has so far enjoyed,” the human rights organization said. (It's not the first time.)
    Bush is in Africa to promote awareness of HIV/AIDS as well as breast and cervical cancer. While Amnesty applauds that goal, “this cannot lessen the damage to the fight against torture caused by allowing someone who has admitted to authorizing waterboarding to travel without facing the consequences prescribed by law,” the statement said. Bush's trip coincides with World AIDS Day today, and he has been receiving much praise for the global AIDS initiative he launched as president

    AI ni wanafiki, wachonganishi na wanafanya kazi kwa double standard tena ni shirika linafanya kazi bila ya mpangilio. Hebu angalia hapa wanaelekeza kukamatwa kwa Bush bila ya kusema ni kwa kipengele kipi, cha sheria ya nchi gani, anashtakiwa wapi, akamatwe na nani na akabidhiwe kwa nani na wapi? Na kama kukamatwa huko ni lazima mbona hawajaiagiza serikali ya Marekani kufanya hivyo? Kama kwamba hiyo haitoshi ni kwa nini wahangaike na kuziagiza nchi dhaifu na masikini - tena zenyewe mahiri kwa uvunjaji wa hizo "haki za Binadamu" kama Tanzania eti zichukue hatua wakati haguswi anapotembelea nchi za kwao kama Canada, Uingereza n.k.?

    ....subutu!!! who can dare to do that? wasituletee balaa bure hawa Amnesty International. Dunia hii mtu asikudanye hakuna kitu inaitwa haki na usawa.

    Kwa ufupi BINADAMU WOTE SI SAWA, usawa tuliofundishwa tangu tukiwa wadogo mashuleni unaishia tu kwenye mahitaji muhimu ya kuishi yaani CHAKULA, MALAZI, HEWA, MAVAZI? na sio katika mambo muhimu kama HAKI, HESHIMA, KUTHAMINIWA, etc.

    Kwakweli wanajua anakolala na kuamka huko huko kwao wakamkamate. Labda tujaribu hata kumsogelea tu na kumnong'oneza kuwa 'tumetumwa tukukamate bwana Bushi' ndo tuone uhondo wake
