Further details: This report on the use of isolation in the Federal Bureau of Prisons only super-maximum security prison, the Administrative Maximum (ADX) facility in Colorado. Prisoners in ADX are confined to solitary cells for 22-24 hours a day in conditions of severe physical and social isolation; conditions which AI believes are unacceptably harsh and fall short of the USA's obligation to treat all prisoners humanely. The report also focuses on the length of time that prisoners are held in isolation - many of whom are held for a prolonged or indefinite periods -without a means to change their circumstances - in violation of the prohibition against cruel inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment under international law.
