REDRESS, in collaboration with four human rights organisations, has addressed a letter to the EU Genocide Network ahead of its 18th Meeting, calling for a special meeting of the Network following the findings of the US Senate Intelligence Committee report summary published last year. This report concludes that the torture techniques used in the post 9/11 torture programme conducted by CIA officials and contractors in secret prisons around the world were far more brutal, systematic and widespread than previously acknowledged. The other co-signatories are Track Impunity Always (TRIAL), Human Rights Watch (HRW), the International Federation for Human Rights (FIDH) and the European Center for Constitutional and Human Rights (ECCHR).
