Two investigations by the Parliamentary Assembly into the High Value Detainee (HVD) program set up by the U.S. administration after the attacks of September 11 revealed numerous serious human rights violations. It was only able to function through the cooperation of certain Council of Europe member states, despite the fact that they are bound by European human rights onventions. The European Commission for Democracy through Law includes its expert legal opinion on general international legal principles and the responsibility that Council of Europe member states would incur if they, either deliberately or by negligence, failed to meet their obligations.--Publisher's description.
