Aljazeera have published a report by Amnesty International that the use of torture by US Military trained security forces have increased.
Is it not about time that some independant organization was commisioned to look into this and report once and for all on the ‘goings’ on in these jails. If the US have nothing to hide and say that all prisoners are getting the basic human rights then surely it’s about time they opened the doors to confirm this.
There seems to be way to many secrets and things going on behind closed doors.
Amnesty International has claimed that use of torture by US-trained security forces in Iraq is increasing and that thousands of prisoners are being denied basic human rights.
In a report published on Monday the human rights group suggests that many detainees being held by the US-led multinational force (MNF) are trapped in a system of arbitrary detention with some being held without being charged for more than two years.
The report, entitled Beyond Abu Ghraib: Detention and torture in Iraq, also says there is mounting evidence of torture by Iraqi security forces, working alongside the MNF, including the so-called Wolf Brigade that reports to the Iraqi interior ministry.
The report lists allegations from former detainees who claim that they were beaten with plastic cables, given electric shocks and made to stand in a flooded room as an electrical current was passed through the water.
