Amnesty International 's annual report on the state of human rights in 157 countries, criticises Denmark on several issues and calls for a global deal for human rights.
In its Denmark report, Amnesty questions the Danish government's attempt to expel foreign nationals on the basis of 'diplomatic guarantees' from countries in which those in question would be in danger of torture.
"States such as Denmark, Germany, Italy, Spain and the UK, were prepared to allow unenforceable "diplomatic assurances" as a justification to deport terrorism suspects to countries where there was a real risk of torture and other ill-treatment," Amnesty says.
In particular Amnesty points to the forced repatriation of Iraqis as well as the so-called 'Tunisian case' in which those involved have faced an uncertain future if they were returned to their country of origin.
