Afghan intelligence service: No torture at our prisons
The report, called “Torture, Transfers, and Denial of Due Process,” also charged that the U.S. government had continued to send some of its detainees to a prison in Kandahar that had been flagged by the U.N. despite the moratorium.
The suggestion was that other arms of the U.S. government, such as the Central Intelligence Agency, had sent detainees to a prison known for torture.
“The U.S. Embassy is working closely with Afghan officials on implementing a monitoring program for U.S.-transferred detainees,” Col. Cummings said, referring queries on U.S. government-held detainees to the embassy.
“We take that allegation seriously, and we’re looking into it,” said Gavin Sundwall, a spokesman for the U.S. Embassy in Kabul.
