Bangalore: Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's daughter Amrit Singh’s campaign against secret rendition and torture and campaign for human rights has crossed national borders. Amrit is currently a senior legal officer at the Open Society Justice Initiative. Amrit, in a 214-page report exposed 54 countries that helped assist the Central Intelligence Agency's secret detention, rendition, and interrogation program in the years after the 9/11 terrorist attacks, reports Chidanand Rajghatta for TNN.

The report shows a grim picture of scores of rigid al-Qaida people as well as travelers who were caught in the huge U.S. counter terrorism drive globally after 9/11.

Singh also named 136 people in the report, who were detained and transferred by the CIA and its associated intelligence outfits. In the report she describes how and where the people were detained, transferred, and interrogated. The list includes many Pakistanis and also has the name of Aafia Siddiqui. It is the largest list compiled till now. It discloses as to how detainees were moved around the world without due process, frequently to countries which ran secret prisons and torture cells.

The countries that were chosen in the extensive CIA drive against terrorism include Pakistan, Afghanistan, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Algeria and Libya which have poor legal systems and judicial oversight. It also comprised of western countries such as Canada, Sweden, Australia, Denmark, Belgium, Finland, Germany, Italy and Spain, a few of which are advocates of human rights and civil liberties.

1: All Politicians of India send their Children’s to USA and PM is not exception? Over and above gain more influence in the local Politics with the help of their VVIP Politicians of India. She is not the only one in New York there are others too with the Badge of UNO Seats at the cost of Indian Tax Payers Money? Besides International Courts Judges from *(India) have very sound life in USA than in India? However the courage shown from the PM~s Daughter to honored provided USA accepts it?
