Canada Would Not Take Calls From International Red Cross Warning That Detainees We Gave To Afghan Authorities Were Being Tortured

"According to our information, the likelihood is that all the Afghans we handed over were tortured," said Colvin, the former political director of the provincial reconstruction team in Kandahar city. "For interrogators in Kandahar, it was standard operating procedure."

He also said that when the Red Cross wanted to look into the treatment of detainees turned over by the Canadian troops, the Canadian Forces wouldn't take their calls. [...]

Colvin named those who were warned about the prisoner treatment and did not act, including now retired chief of defence staff Gen. Rick Hillier; David Mulroney, former deputy minister of the Afghanistan Task Force in the Privy Council Office; and Margaret Bloodworth, Prime Minister Stephen Harper's national security adviser."
