Hicks v Australia (2005/2010) Australian Government response
Human Rights Communications
2005/2010 concerning prison transfer agreement
The author alleged that Australia had violated articles 2, 7, 10, 12, 14, 15, 17, 19, 22 and 26 of the ICCPR on the basis of his treatment in custody at the United States Naval Base at Guantanamo Bay and his imprisonment in Australia under the terms of a prison transfer arrangement. The Committee found the author's claims in relation to his treatment in custody at Guantanamo Bay to be inadmissible. However, it issued adverse views in respect of article 9.
