India’s Courts are Allowing Foreigners Tribunals to Render People Stateless in Assam
For the last 15 years, Foreigners Tribunals have wreaked havoc in Assam by arbitrarily denying people their citizenship. Riddled with bias, they have declared Indian citizens to be foreigners for minor spelling mistakes in their names, their inability to provide detailed documents or recall minute ancestral details dating back 50 years or more. These semi-judicial bodies have not been held accountable by the courts, the Government of India and the Government of Assam. Instead, they have been emboldened to function with little or no oversight. Amnesty International India strongly urges Government of India to ensure that the Foreigners Tribunals function with utmost transparency and operate in line with fair trial standards.
