Two United Nations special rapporteurs said Tuesday they would investigate secret detention centres used by the CIA in counter-terrorism efforts.

“We call on all governments to cooperate, not just in clarifying the facts, but in ensuring that such secret detention centres will no longer be used in the future,” Manfred Nowak, the UN Special Rapporteur on Torture said.

Nowak and Martin Scheinin, Special Rapporteur on Human Rights and Counter-terrorism will study locations alleged to have hosted such secret detention centres, including US military bases.



Besides secret jails run by the CIA, the study would also probe alleged prisons run by other governments.

Scheinin said such prisons were “one of the most horrendous practices” that emerged after the September 11 attacks in the US, while Nowak hoped that this “will stop, and perhaps is in the process of being stopped.”
