Mistreatment Of Detainees

mistreatment Of Detainees

and the torture ceased once they signed or thumbprinted pre-prepared confession statements. 128 occasions when a foreign intelligence agency told the UK about mistreatment but nothing was done. "The pace of work after 9/11, both in Afghanistan and London, was frenetic: we do not underestimate the pressure that the agencies experienced whilst dealing with the imperative to protect the UK and prevent another attack on the scale of 9/11.". "Two detainees are now known to have transferred through Diego Garcia: we have seen nothing to indicate that detainees have ever been held on Diego Garcia a military facility in the Indian Ocean, although the records are woefully inadequate.". Among the methods described by interviewees were severe beatings to the body and soles of the feet with sticks, plastic pipes or cables, electric shocks, including to the genitals, prolonged suspension by the arms, and suffocation. People will say anything to stop the pain. We were simply not prepared for the work we became involved in following 9/11. It took evidence from former detainees and three former intelligence officers, but criticised the government for denying them access to some witnesses.

From 2002, UK intelligence officers from MI6, MI5 and the Ministry of Defence (MOD participated in an estimated 2-3,000 interviews of detainees, held by the US at locations in Iraq, Afghanistan and Guantanamo Bay. The International Criminal Court in The Hague is conducting a separate review of torture in Afghanistan, although their sphere of research includes abuses committed by US forces during their 13-year occupation of the country. A long overdue report on detainee mistreatment and rendition, from parliament's intelligence and security committee (ISC concludes those at the top of MI6, MI5 and Defence Intelligence knew about "the pattern of mistreatment by the US" and "tolerated". "Whilst there is room for improvement, very few countries have attempted to set out their approach to these matters, and let themselves be held accountable in this manner it said. Mrs May added the government will give "further consideration" to the ISC's conclusions and will be inviting the Investigatory Powers Commissioner, Sir Adrian Fulford, to make proposals about how guidance to intelligence services on detention and interviewing detainees could be improved. Image: The report focused on events after the 9/11 terror attacks. "Our findings must be viewed in the context in which events took place. We have learned the lessons of those difficult post-9/11 years and structures have matured, both in SIS and across government.". It is essential there is proper monitoring of detention facilities in Afghanistan and meaningful investigations to ensure those accused of torture are brought to trial and held accountable for this abhorrent crime. Many have been released to their home countries or to other nations over the past eight years.
