Complicity In Torture - UK - Hearing on March 10, 2009 - PLEASE SEND AN EMAIL TO :
Asking that Craig Murray, British Ambassador in Uzbekistan from 2002 to 2004, be allowed to give evidence of UK Complicity in Torture.
Craig Murray was UK Ambassador to Uzbekistan. The government there was (still is) torturing people and giving intelligence thus obtained to the CIA, which sent it to MI6 and the Foreign Office.
Craig sent a series of telegrams to the Foreign OFicce objecting to this policy of complicity in torture. The policy ended up being approved by Jack Straw and Craig , then the Embassador, was fired.
On Tuesday, March 10, 2009, the Parliamentary Joint Committee on Human Rights in UK will discuss whether or not to hear Craig's evidence on the UK government's policy of using intelligence from torture.
Please email the UK's Parliamentary Joint Committee on Human Rights to be heard next Tuesday - March 10, 2009.
Please copy your email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the email , urge that Craig Murray be allowed to give evidence on the subject of the UK government's policy on intelligence cooperation with torture abroad. Just a one-liner would be fine.
