Adéu a Nihil Obstat | Hola a The Catalan Analyst

Després de 13 anys d'escriure en aquest bloc pràcticament sense interrumpció, avui el dono per clausurat.

Es tracta del bloc The Catalan Analyst i del compte de Twitter del mateix nom: @CatalanAnalyst Us recomano que els seguiu.

Moltes gràcies a tots per haver-me seguit amb tanta fidelitat durant tots aquests anys.

Portarà Garzón a l'administració Bush davant la Justícia?

És la pregunta que avui es fa la revista "Time":
Chile's Pinochet. Argentina's Scilingo. Guatemala's Rios Montt. To the roster of international figures whom Spanish investigative judge Baltasar Garzón has sought to bring to justice, the name of Gonzales may soon be added. As in: Alberto Gonzales, former U.S. attorney general and one of the legal minds behind the Bush administration's justification for the use of torture at Guantánamo.

On March 17, a group of lawyers representing the Association for the Dignity of Prisoners, a Spanish human rights group, filed a complaint in Spain's National Court against Gonzales and five other former officials, including Undersecretary of Defense Douglas Feith and the Justice Department's John Yoo, for violating international law by creating a legal framework that permitted the torture of suspect terrorists. On March 29, the complaint became public after Garzón, who had been assigned the case, sent it to the prosecutor's office for review, a step seen by many familiar with the court as a sign that the judge will soon agree to investigate the case.
