We are writing to you about upcoming negotiations on the Comprehensive Convention Against International Terrorism (the "Comprehensive Convention"). As you may know, next week, the United Nations Sixth Committee of the General Assembly will discuss the draft text that emerged from the negotiations last October. At that time Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch had specific concerns about various provisions in the text. While some of those issues have been partially addressed, we remain disturbed by certain provisions of the draft Comprehensive Convention. We hope that you will weigh these concerns carefully.
