Extraordinary Rendition & Torture Case

SCSJ assisted an investigator from London-based legal organization, Reprieve, to research and document facts related to the case of Binyam Mohamed, a UK resident that was imprisoned at Guantanamo Bay for 5 years before being released back to the UK in February 2009.
Mohamed claims that he was flown to a secret prisons in Morocco and Afghanistan, where we was brutally tortured. Aero Contractors, the company that been implicated as the contract operators for these CIA-sponsored flights, is located in Johnston County, North Carolina.
We continue to support the efforts of NC Stop Torture Now, Reprieve, and other organizations that are working to bring to light the United States role in international kidnap and torture under its “Extraordinary Rendition” program. We believe that this program must end and applaud current efforts to shut down secret U.S. detention facilities and end the practice of torture by the United States or its proxies.
