USA: Truth be told: Call for proper investigation and declassification of alleged role in secret detention program of nominee for CIA director

, Index number: AMR 51/8146/2018

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.
