CANADIAN GENERAL SAYS THERE IS EVIDENCE OF AFGHAN PRISONER ABUSE

TORONTO, Canada – Canada's top general says there is evidence that a prisoner captured by the military in 2006 and handed over to Afghan authorities was abused.
Gen. Walt Natynczyk's disclosure contradicts Defense Minister Peter MacKay's repeated insistence that not a single case of torture of detainees could be proven.
  • The revelation raises questions about whether Canada violated international law by continuing to transfer prisoners to Afghan custody after it had evidence of abuse.
  • Opposition parties stepped up calls for MacKay's resignation and are demanding a public inquiry.
  • Natynczyk says he's launching an investigation into why neither he, nor his predecessor, Gen. Rick Hillier, saw a platoon commander's report, which detailed the prisoner's capture.
