Switzerland: Rights Groups Issue ‘Indictment’ of Bush

Two rights groups issued what they called a preliminary indictment against former President George W. Bush on torture charges in Geneva on Monday, vowing that he would face a case against him wherever he traveled outside the United States.

 The 42-page document by the New York-based Center for Constitutional Rights and the Berlin-based European Center for Constitutional and Human Rights said that Mr. Bush had authorized the torture of terrorism suspects in American custody.

The document was described as “a preliminary legal analysis” that could be modified for particular plaintiffs and countries.

“So if he decides to leave the United States in the future, as soon as we hear about it we will have a complaint filed,” said Katherine Gallagher, a senior attorney at the Center for Constitutional Rights.

Mr. Bush canceled a trip to Geneva this week because of security concerns.
