GJC Files FOIA Request with MUHURI & CCR on U.S. Role in Kenyan Human Rights Violations

The NYU School of Law’s Global Justice Clinic, in partnership with Muslims for Human Rights (MUHURI) and the Center for Constitutional Rights (CCR), filed two Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests today to obtain transparency about the United States government’s role in training, funding, and supporting Kenyan police and paramilitary forces involved in serious human rights abuses against Muslim communities. The requests to the CIA, FBI, Department of Defense, Department of State, and Office of the Director of National Intelligence follow MUHURI’s work representing the families of victims who were forcibly disappeared and extrajudicially executed, as well as investigative reporting uncovering U.S. support for abusive police and paramilitary forces under the guise of “sustainable counterterrorism.” The Global Justice Clinic and its partners are seeking information to support MUHURI’s work in obtaining justice for the individuals and families impacted by these operations.
