On 25 November 2009, Spanish criminal lawyer Gonzalo Boyé spoke at the ECCHR offices about the human rights cases currently pending in Spanish courts. Wolfgang Kaleck reviewed the German and French Rumsfeld Cases (2004-2007). Gonzalo Boyé then discussed the two cases that he supervises as a lawyer; the case concerning the targeted killings of Salah Sheheda/Gaza, and the torture case against US-American jurists in connection with Guantánamo Bay. The subsequent discussion is centered on the new Spanish amendment bill regarding cases of universal jurisdiction and, more importantly, whether the current proceedings would be affected by this latest reform.
