HRW: UK, France and Germany use torture-tained intelligence

June 29, 2010

In a report released yesterday, Human Rights Watch calls out France, Germany, and Britain for using intelligence obtained in other countries through torture:

“Berlin, Paris, and London should be working to eradicate torture, not relying on foreign torture intelligence,” said Judith Sunderland, senior Western Europe researcher at Human Rights Watch. “Taking information from torturers is illegal and just plain wrong.”
