Letter to US Attorney General calling for investigation of CIA torture
9 December 2016 marks the 2nd anniversary of the US Senate torture report. A letter sent today to US Attorney General Loretta Lynch by Human Rights in Practice and other organisations involved in rendition accountability work calls on the US government to open a criminal investigation as a matter of urgency. It is more important than ever to send a clear message that torture and enforced disappearance will be investigated and prosecuted as serious crimes.

The letter is available here.
