Amnesty International halts operations in India

Amnesty International suspended human rights work in India after an Indian government investigative arm froze the organization’s bank accounts, according to a statement released Tuesday.

“This is an egregious and shameful act by the Indian government, which forces us to cease the crucial human rights work of Amnesty International India for now,” Julie Verhaar, the acting secretary-general of Amnesty, said in a statement, adding that the organization was working “resolutely” to determine how it can continue human rights work in India.
