‘UK MUST HAND OVER TORTURE EVIDENCE’ – says Amnesty
Binyam Mohamed is a former UK resident imprisoned in the US concentration camp at Guantanamo Bay, and the information might help prove that he has been a victim of torture and other ill-treatment in the US-led programme of renditions and secret detention.
‘Providing this information would be a first step towards accountability for the UK’s involvement in the US programme of rendition and secret detention, and in the torture and other ill-treatment of terrorist suspects,’ said Halya Gowan, a spokesperson for Amnesty International.
Binyam Mohamed was arrested at Karachi airport in April 2002 and handed over into US custody three months later.
In July 2002, he was transferred on a CIA-registered plane to Morocco, where he was held for about 18 months and allegedly tortured, including having his penis cut by a razor blade.
After five months, he was transferred to the US airbase in Bagram, and suffered further alleged ill-treatment there, before being transferred in mid-September 2004 to Guantanamo where he has remained ever since.
‘Statements that Binyam Mohamed made in the course of his unlawful detention will form the basis of charges against him if he is tried before a Military Commission at Guantanamo Bay – a trial which would be unfair, and could involve charges which could be punishable by death.
‘Any information which the UK authorities have which relates to violations of his human rights or could help Binyam Mohamed’s defence should be disclosed to his lawyers without any further delay’, said Halya Gowan.
