Treatment of Conflict-Related Detainees in Afghan Custody: One Year On
Jan Kubis (au)
This report shows that torture remains a serious concern in numerous detention facilities across Afghanistan, despite significant efforts by the Government and international partners to address the problem. The report states that more than half of 635 conflict-related detainees interviewed experienced ill-treatment and torture, particularly in 34 facilities of the Afghan National Police (ANP) and the National Directorate of Security (NDS) between October 2011 and October 2012. Torture took the form of abusive interrogation techniques in which Afghan officials inflicted severe pain and suffering on detainees during interrogations aimed mainly at obtaining a confession or information. Fourteen methods of torture and ill-treatment are described similar to practices previously documented by the UN Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA). Figures. This is a print on demand report.
