On Tuesday, December 27, 2005, the Center for Human Rights and Global Justice (CHRGJ) at New York University School of Law called on the United States Secretary of State to withhold extradition of any person who is more likely than not to be subjected to torture upon return. The CHRGJ issued its call as the U.S. Secretary of State finalized her decision whether to extradite Kulvir Singh Barapind to India. The CHRGJ submitted an amicus letter (pdf, 1.6 MB) in support of the legal position taken by Mr. Barapind in his application for relief under the Convention Against Torture, prepared by ENSAAF, regarding U.S. obligations under international and domestic law.
