UK Group: Possible Secret German Prison
October 06, 2006
‘We call upon the German government to order an independent investigation,’ said Clive Stafford Smith, a lawyer who is legal director for Reprieve, an organization campaigning against the death penalty.
According to Reprieve, Guantanamo prisoner Hassan bin Attash claims he was told by Jordanian torturers that his brother _ alleged senior al-Qaida figure Waleed Tawfiq bin Attash_ was being held for interrogation at a U.S. prison at an air force base in Germany.
Prisoner Binyam Mohamed says he was told by Moroccan interrogators that Khalid Sheikh Mohamed, alleged Al-Qaeda number 2, was being held for interrogation at a U.S. prison at an air force base in Germany, Reprieve said.
‘The prisoners were blindfolded and shackled, but Shaker Aamer could see underneath his blindfold and hear people talking,’ Reprieve said.
