Senior official quits Amnesty International
Mr. Begg has posted a statement on Cageprisoners’ website addressing questions about his ties to Mr. al-Awlaki. He said Cageprisoners had campaigned for Mr. al-Awlaki when the cleric was detained without trial in Yemen in 2006.
“Cageprisoners never has and never will support the ideology of killing innocent civilians, whether by suicide bombers or B-52s, whether that’s authorized by Awlaki or by [President] Obama. Neither will we be forced into determining a person’s guilt outside a recognized court of law,” Mr. Begg said.
