CIA TORTURE ON TERROR SUSPECTS: MALAYSIA OFFERED RENDITIONS?


A report detailing the use of torture by the United State Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) following the 9/11 terrorist attacks has listed Malaysia as among the countries that offered renditions.
According to foreign reports, the governments’ assistance ranged from passing along information about suspects, including those countries’ own citizens, to serving as a transit point for flights to countries where enhanced interrogation was taking place; the covert capture and transfer of such suspects to various clandestine detention facilities set up for such purposes.
According to Malaysian's Opposition Party Keadilan Youth chief, Nik Nazmi Nik Ahmad, the report has ramifications for Malaysia because it highlights the role that our country and other allies in the “Global War of Terror” played in the practice of “extraordinary rendition”.
“Indeed, in February 2013 the Open Society Justice Initiative released a report entitled “Globalising Torture: CIA Secret Detention and Extraordinary Rendition” which alleged that Malaysia had assisted the CIA in this manner in at least two cases.
“It would appear that former prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s hysterical denunciations aside, Malaysia seems to have little or no qualms with collaborating with the US in such actions.
“While stopping terror plots is paramount, Malaysia should not have compromised its moral integrity in this way,” he said.
Nik Nazmi said these two threats can only be defeated if our societies remain dedicated to preserving civil liberties and personal freedoms even as they work to protect the lives of its citizens.
