Britain trains Bangladeshi torturers: New evidence

Source : Socialist Worker Online

Further evidence has come to light of the relationship between British governments and a Bangladeshi paramilitary death squad.

A leaked US embassy cable showed that the Rapid Action Battalion (RAB), responsible for hundreds of murders, received British training in “investigative interviewing techniques”.

It has emerged that British authorities passed information about British nationals to the group—while they were held at a secret interrogation centre where inmates have died under torture.

Gulam Mustafa, from Birmingham, was beaten and tortured with electric shocks.

According to the Guardian newspaper, Bangladeshi police officers say his arrest had been at the request of MI6.

Former Labour ministers Jacqui Smith, Alan Johnson and David Miliband all have questions to answer over torture in Bangladesh.

The foreign office says the British government continues to “provide a range of human rights assistance” in the country.
