NLG and Other Groups Issue Letter to Secretary Clinton Regarding Ameer Makhoul

Today, the National Lawyers Guild sent a letter to the office of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on behalf of human rights defender Ameer Makhoul. The letter, also signed by the Center for Constitutional Rights, the International Association of Democratic Lawyers, and others, calls on the State Department to "investigate the arrest, unlawful treatment, and detention of Mr. Makhoul and use its considerable diplomatic influence to bring an end to his arbitrary detention and to ensure that Israel, a leading recipient of U.S. military and economic aid, comply with its commitment under U.S. law and international legal norms."
