USA: Truth be told: Call for proper investigation and declassification of alleged role in secret detention program of nominee for CIA director
On 13 March 2018, President Donald Trump announced via Twitter that he was nominating Gina Haspel to become the next Director of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). The nomination raises serious human rights concerns because Gina Haspel is alleged to have been involved in a program of secret detention operated by the CIA between 2002 and 2008. Amnesty International has called on President Trump to withdraw his nomination of Gina Haspel pending investigation into her alleged role in crimes under international law.
