Motion Filed to Preserve Evidence of Majid's Torture While at CIA Black Site
Last week, a motion that Center for Constitutional Rights attorneys filed in the case of former ghost detainee Majid Khan was made public. The heavily redacted motion, which was filed in order to preserve evidence of Majid's torture, contains new revelations of his treatment while interrogated at a CIA black site. The motion was filed before it was revealed that the CIA had destroyed interrogation tapes.
A small portion of the notes that CCR attorneys Gitanjali Gutierrez and Wells Dixon compiled based on their conversations with Majid in November were also declassified. Below is some of the information contained in the notes:
Both the motion and the declassified notes are attached below.
The Center for Constitutional Rights is dedicated to advancing and protecting the rights guaranteed by the United States Constitution and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Founded in 1966 by attorneys who represented civil rights movements in the South, CCR is a non-profit legal and educational organization committed to the creative use of law as a positive force for social change.
