"The video footage which has emerged today is alarming and strengthens the case for an urgent inquiry into what happened at the fort," Amnesty International said today.
The reported conduct of the CIA operatives is disturbing, specifically the apparent threat of execution. All personnel involved in the custody and interrogation of prisoners should be fully aware that death threats against prisoners violate international human rights and humanitarian law. The US, UK and United Front should re-consider their position and hold an inquiry without further delay.
Amnesty International has suggested that they consider calling on the UN or the International Fact-Finding Commission to conduct a preliminary inquiry.
