USA: Torture and secret detention: Testimony of the 'disappeared' in the 'war on terror'

, Index number: AMR 51/108/2005

This document is about Yemeni detainees who appear to have been victims of the US administration's policy of secret detentions around the world. Although they are no longer held in solitary confinement, both Muhammad Faraj Ahmed Bashmilah and Salah Nasser Salim 'Ali remain in detention in Yemen. This document also tells of Walid Muhammad Shahir Muhammad al-Qadasi, also detained in Yemen without charge or trial. Amnesty International calls upon both the US and Yemeni authorities to ensure that all three men are released immediately if they are not to be promptly charged with recognizably criminal offences.
