Amnesty International Report 2004

Human rights situation in 155 countries and territories in 2003.

Amnesty International has presented the Report 2004 which documents the human rights situation in 155 countries and territories in 2003. According to Amnesty International, "Huge challenges confronted the international human rights movement in 2003. The UN faced a crisis of legitimacy and credibility because of the US-led war on Iraq and the organization's inability to hold states to account for gross human rights violations. International human rights standards continued to be flouted in the name of the "war on terror", resulting in thousands of women and men suffering unlawful detention, unfair trial and torture – often solely because of their ethnic or religious background. Around the world, more than a billion people's lives were ruined by extreme poverty and social injustice while governments continued to spend freely on arms."
