Ireland Refuses to Extradite Man to US Because Prison System is Too Inhumane

(ANTIMEDIA) Throughout the world, the U.S. prison system is often seen as inhumane and excessively large.

The American prison system is so reviled, in fact, that Irish officials recently refused to extradite an alleged terrorist to the U.S. The court cited concerns that if he were sent to the U.S., he would probably be placed in Colorado’s “Supermax” prison, ADX Florence (Administrative Maximum Facility). The prison is nicknamed Colorado’s “Alcatraz of the Rockies.”

Irish High Court Justice Aileen Donnelly went as far as to write a 333-page report about why the suspect shouldn’t be extradited. One highlight from the court’s ruling was that incarceration at ADX Florence prison would amount to “cruel and unusual punishment.”

Donnelly said the prison “amounts to a breach of the constitutional requirement to protect persons from inhuman and degrading treatment and to respect the dignity of the human being.”

“[P]rolonged exposure to involuntary solitary confinement exacts a significant physiological toll, is damaging to the integrity of the mind and personality, and is damaging to the bodily integrity of the person,” she continued.

According to the Los Angeles Times, “An Irish resident originally from Algiers, Damache, 50, [is]accused of using online chat rooms to recruit American women into a would-be terrorist cell operating in this country and Europe.

One man and two women, including Damache’s wife, have already been convicted in U.S. courts of providing material support to terrorists. And Damache was captured by Irish authorities in 2010 in Dublin on a separate charge of making a telephone death threat and held without bail.”

In 2011, Damache was indicted from a distance in a Philadelphia court on “charges of plotting to assassinate a Swedish cartoonist who depicted the prophet Muhammad as a dog.”

Damache was released in May after serving his time, but the U.S. is still pushing for his extradition.

“I always had faith in the Irish legal system,” he said in a statement presented by his lawyers. “After more than five years in jail, I am looking forward to moving on with my life here.”

The Colorado prison has held some of the most well-known criminals in American history, keeping them in solitary confinement with extremely limited access to outside communication. Notorious inmates include Timothy McVeigh and other people accused of high level terrorism—such as Zacarias Moussaoui, the only person convicted in a civilian court for involvement in the 9/11 attacks.

Lawyers have even argued that incarceration at ADX Florence is worse than the death penalty. Defense expert Mark Bezy called it “a mechanism to cut off an inmate’s communications with the outside world.”

The Irish court’s refusal to extradite Damache adds to a growing trend of nations that opt to exercise their own sovereignty amid pressure from powerful American influence. Such nations are increasingly moving to decide issues for themselves as they refuse to be persuaded into following the orders of a more powerful empire.

  2. Prison in Ireland and Prison in the US…..it's prison, not honor camp, Those are hard core crimes. Freedom of speach is right, not all views are correct we know, but that does NOT give you the right to murder someone for being and idiot. Locked up here or there no big deal, as long as they "are".

  3. No!!!! That "man" voided his civil rights when he attempted to harm others and impose his religion forcefully onto another person, if he was Christian I doubt you all would still have sympathy for him. You don't coddle and prisoners especially when they're this much of a threat to so many people.

  4. He's a terrorist, he deserves death, solitary confinement is hardly a just punishment for the victims families. How about we let them decide what to do with him. Cruel and unusual…are you saying he should get more privileges than the people whose lives he stole?

  5. For those wishing death upon those like Damache, all that does is further empower those who still wish to do us harm. No amount of death to these people will change the fact that their victims are dead.

    If it's possible to reform someone, as it seems to be the case, then we should do it. Death is ultimately nothing more than shortcut for some of these people, so you are doing little by killing them.

  19. If he is proved guilty, and sentenced to death, then that would be a just sentence. But how we mete out justice, should meet higher standards of practice than those we presume to stand judge over. We are a nation of laws. Founded on christian faith and principles. We stand for justice and eqaulity, and our laws are written to provide that justice. But the law also demands those that are subject to accusation and prosecution, are provided with a Just court that allows the defendent to be considered innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a fair court of law. He may be guilty and he may be deserving of death, but by our standard of law, which is supposed to be founded on principles of honor, integrity, and justice he is innocent until proven guilty. As for cruel and unusual punishment, again how we measure out justice to those convicted in a court of law should be done within a manner that reflects who we say we are as Americans.

  22. Once again I would like ot point out some nuances in a story. The US court system has somehow indicted, most likely on illegally obtained "evidence", an Irish resident, not an American citizen, for plotting to kill a Swedish citizen, onse again not a US citizen. How the fuck does this HAVE ANYTHING to do with the US court system. Oh, thats right, because the US' fucked up government is all perfect, all knowing and all watching of the whole world, and apparently has cided to itself jurisdiction of the ENTIRE fucking planet. Sorry but please allow me to call BULLSHIT on this. This "crime" if it even did occur has absolutly NOTHING to do with the US and is completely outside of US jurisdiction. It is about time some foreign government slapped Uncle Sam in the mouth and told him to go the fuck back home. There are so many other issues with this story that I could go on for pages, but I'll leave it at this. The US does not, and should not be considered OR ALLOWED to be the COPS OF THE WORLD! This is the biggest problem facing the world today and is causing more terrorists to be created than ever before.

  23. Now, I don't know which side of the issue I'm on, I'd have to think about it, and it would be a case by case basis. But the death isn't for his victims. It's for his future victims. If I thought he has the chance to kill again, then yes, he gets death. It's worth it to save innocent lives

  26. Prison is to help reform the criminals and wehn/if they are released they can be less dangerous. American jails/superprisons are the opposite. They breed crime. So being jailed in Europe is better than being jailed in some Jail-for-profit Super prison in the US which you have a high chance of being murdered….

    Criminals still have human rights. America does not believe this for its prisoners ot its citizens.

The U.S. GOP takes it upon themselves to police the world. There's a smear campaign that attempts to label as Muslims as terrorists, and then you expect them to be hospitable. Stay in your own country and work on that. The U.S. sure as hell don't want Mexicans coming here. Same applies to other places.

  52. Lola Warers Worse than terrorists are the people who arrest them and then treat them inhumanely. No prisoner should be subjected to solitary confinement. Have you ever been in solitary? You start going crazy after even a few weeks of no human contact, no lights, nothing but 4 walls and crappy meal. It is prison, yes, but treating any prisoner as less than human makes the person who put him there and condones that treatment less than human too.

    Before you talk about stuff you don't know, you should really look into the science and experiences recorded about solitary confinement. Nobody condones terrorism, but nobody should condone the treatment of prisoners in that way.

    @Lee only because it's true, we are becoming more and more tolerant towards every religious belief while chipping away at christians and their rights.
    @Jared Yeah nice try attacking me by way of my employment, but I make a lot of money doing what I do, but sarcastically I'll simply say that'd be a step in the right direction. =)
    4. @Jessica I'm not christian, I just recognize that they're beliefs are increasingly being suppressed, and yes you're using the tired argument that not all Muslims are terrorist andn you're correct however as much as 15 percent are, yes are government puts labels on them but they do it to themselves too. What you fail to realize is that if we don't "police the world" and tell everyone their struggles are their problem eventually their problems land on our doorstep, and we have to take care of it anyway, world war 2 we tried to stay out of it and then pearl harbor got bombed, Bill Clinton repeatedly allowed terrorists to attack our forwign embassies and not long after he left office 9/11 happened. Those who fail to learn from history are sadly doomed to repeat it. What does illegal immigration have to do with this article???

If you work a job and then claim you religion does not allow you to do said job because it is against your religious views then you in my view are an idiot. Every religious nutjob that denied people their given rights be it Same sex marriage, changing their gender to that which you feel more intuned with or having an abortian because the victim was raped but some asshat religious nutjob declares this is against gods will.

    Fuck your Gods and superstitious beliefs. We live in the 21st century not the 16th. Your God has no control over this world because he does not exist. If he does then he needs to sort his fucking minions out because Lucifer is looking more likable every day.

  69. Sonia Iris Very easy to stand in judgement of another when you your self have been a victim of a crime. Let me ask, have you ever had a relative accussed of a crime? have you ever had a loved one who has commited an act of violence against another?
    I know of a boy, orphaned at the age of 3, sexauly brutalized from the ages of 4 till the age of 13. One of his earliest memories was hiding his bloodstained underwear, out of both shame and fear. In and out of foster care, he found what few friends he had on the streets amongst other teens who had simialr broken homes and discovered the peace and escape that drugs offered him. Living on the streets on his own from about the age of 14, he learned to think juvinile hall was a safe place to be. By the age of 20 he was addicted to drugs, without hope, without family, without love and without direction. It was only a matter of time before the years of shame, hurt, guilt and an intense growing rage about what happened to him brought him to a place of hatred and darkness. And he went to prison for stabbing another man who triggered what was buliding in him.
    Now, I want to know your thoughts.
    About this little boy who has survived tragedy after tragedy to adulthood, who never had time to do much but survive and to try to escape being a rape victim, is this little boy who has now become a man, a dirt bag? Or is he a victim? If it was your son would still think the same?
    Does what you have suffered justify your feelings about it?
    Do you think he feels justified because of what he suffered?
    Just asking…

    @Lee wow someone needs a valium. Alright look here dickhead I was trying to be polite but now you've pissed me off with your calling and excessive rage. You don't see muslims being forced to bake a fucking cake for a homosexual couple, you don't hear the prophet Mohammed's name being removed from the pledge of allegiance, they aren't being told it's politically correct to say happy jolidays instead of their holidays name. Do you see Muslim mosques being leaned on to marry homosexuals, NO! You know why? Because homosexuals actually fear them, their not going to piss them off for fear of winding up on the 5 o'clock news or worse, CNN. We push on Christians because most Christian nations have become more tolerant of other religions, yet everybody wants to defend Muslims though extent of tolerance is stay the hell away from us and don't you dare insult our religion. Finally you obviously aren't bery literate because I've already stated it's not MY god, and it still sounds more sensible than believing in NOTHING, there are no atheist just agnostics with complicated or strange beliefs. Now go fuck yourself and have a nice day =)

  74. Lee Bearded Redcoat Taylor America has every right to be upset with those attempting to recruit people for terror against it. There are no nations that would be happy with another nation sheltering such a person. If the individual in this article is worth an incident I highly doubt so as long as the criminal does not resume recruitment efforts the US will make unhappy rumblings and probably refuse extradition next time they are asked but little else.

    One of my favorite lines from Battlestar Galactica is "The thing is, the harder it is to recognize someone's right to draw breath, the more crucial it is. If humanity is going to prove itself worthy of surviving, it can't do it on a case by case basis. A bad man feels his death just as keenly as a good man."

  80. I don't condone law breaking period, however I find it interesting that other countries are aware of the inhumane prison's in the US. while so many US. citizens are still blind and ignorant to this. There is a saying that goes.., "an eye for an eye makes the whole world blind". It means, if you wish harm on others who have caused harm, then you are no better then that person yourself. The US. prison systems has deep issues and problems, as does the whole judicial system. It's truly not about justice as it had intended to be, it's now just a money making business for both county and state. The judicial system gives the false impression to it's citizens that they are cleaning up it's streets of crime commiters…, but once inside it becomes the system and it's over seers who commit inhumane crimes on the prisoners. If this is okay with some then you might be one of the blinded who is no better then that prisoner. You yourself being a crimminal. US. society is okay with keeping the blinders on to our judicial system and the many atrocities that happen within it…, until it hits closer to home or someone you know or care about.., thats when blinders come off. I don't support Damache's actions or crimes, but I applaud Ireland Court Justice Aileen Donnelly for having done her research and for not being blind to the US. prison's and system and what goes on within it. Why is it so difficult for other US. citizens to see the truth and recognize what's been happening in their own back yards.., yet people in other countries can see and know the truth???

  81. Sonia Iris Random violence, especially against strangers, is extremely rare. Therefore, choose your friends and who you associate with wisely. As for the court system getting it correct, the defense for a capital murder charge in many states would be about $1600.00 maximum, and the public pretender (public defender) assigned to most accused defendents gets you nothing. Also, doctors, lawyers, businessmen, dentists, and many others do not have to serve on juries. Therefore, the only people who serve on juries are people too stupid to get out of jury duty. The idiots who watch a lot of television and believe that level of stupidity(media is delivered and understood at a 3rd grader's level) are the ones who serve, and many of those have at least a misdemeanor charge against them somewhere in their past. Sounds to me like a system that fails justice rather than promotes it, and one that does so intentionally and not by accident.

  83. How about the term "unusually corporate" to describe the pay for prison system in the US these days? I wholeheartedly support her decision. The IRA is an internal issue and has no bearing on today's "war on terror". When was the last time you heard about the IRA as a threat to to the US?
