For every #SriLankan who saw protestors at #GGG being assaulted by the #military & said "if they are doing this in #Colombo, can you imagine what happened to #Tamils in the #North & #East?" ENOUGH! There is no need to imagine, we know! 1/8
There are enough videos, films, still photographs, eye witness testimony, survivor testimony #UN reports, & other expert reports to clearly lay out what happened in #Mullivaikkal & before, was #CrimesAgainstHumanity, #WarCrimes & #Genocide. You chose not to believe! 2/8
There are 100's of people who died getting that information of #WarCrimes out of the #WarZone. Too many #journalists & #activists were killed, attacked, jailed, #tortured & exiled trying to disseminate that information, because you chose not to believe. 3/8

"Despite an overall, significant reduction in armed violence, between mid-August 2021& mid-June 2022, UNAMA recorded 2106 #civilian_casualties (700 killed, 1406 wounded). The majority of civilian casualties were attributed to attacks by the #ISKP.…
On 17 August 2021, TB announced an amnesty for former govt. officials&ANSF members. This amnesty does not, however, appear to have been consistently upheld. UNAMA recorded at least 160 extrajudicial killings of former govt&security officials by TB members in the reporting period.
UNAMA’s report highlights specific concerns with respect to 2 bodies within the TB govt.– the de facto Ministry of Propagation of Virtue&Prevention of Vice (that limit the human rights& freedoms, in particular of women& girls) and the de facto General Directorate of Intelligence.

16 years ago, 3 of my friends were “found” dead in their cages on my cell block, hanging by the neck, hands and feet bound, cloths shoved in down their throats. Their names were Yasser, Mana, and Ali. The #Guantánamo camp admin called them suicides.
رحمهم الله.
This was 6/9/06 and we were in Camp 1’s Alpha block. Yasser, Mana, and Ali and I had been on hunger strike recently and were known by the camp for protesting our indefinite and arbitrary detention, constant harassment, and #torture.
Yasser was barely 17 when he was sent to #Guantánamo and had been sexually harassed by female guards and interrogators. He’d been told he was going to be released soon. He had the most beautiful singing voice.

1/4 In the context of #Ukraine, I would like to draw your attention to 🇰🇿, where human rights defenders are under pressure. In particular for recording the facts of #TORTURE & the shooting of #kazakhstanprotests2022 in January of this year. @CoESpokesperson @MartinaMlinare1
2/4 @Ombudsperson_KZ, met with the @CommissionerHR,did not talk about the realities of the country. Today in court human rights activist Aidar #Syzdykov said that he was ready to go to #suicide.Because it's simply impossible to defend the violated rights in the system, @sturcalo

Urgent thread:
We’re very worried about my father who called this morning and said he won’t be allowed to make anymore calls, and was chanting Free #Bahrain, Free #Palestine, and down with israels collaborators - they kept cutting the call and he kept trying to call back.
Yesterday during his call he named people who took part in and/or were responsible for his torture, and we’re worried about the retaliation against him - more so than what they’re already doing as I’ll mention in the following tweets
Due to my father’s chants in Feb about #Palestine, all treatment for the damage done by #torture he endured has stopped, as well as all access to medical appointments - some were urgent as he may be going blind in his right eye due to glaucoma, which is progressive & irreversible

1/5 Valentina #Matvienko visited #Almaty & made a proposal to create a human rights committee for the #UIS. Does this mean that #Kazakhstan will withdraw from the @UN_HRC? The prototype of the @ECHR_CEDH created by #Putin will lead to a new repression of civil society. @Left_EU Image
2/5 #Tokayev already fails to comply with the Resolutions @eu_eeas. For example, the number of arrested civil activists has increased. The relatives of Nurzhan #Sembayev are being pressured and not allowed to use an independent lawyer. @EamonGilmore @rozathun @MihraRittmann @hrw
3/5 Punitive psychiatry methods were used against political prisoner Yerulan #Amirov. He has never been released, there are more, more civil activists in the penitentiary institutions. @CiudadanosCs @nnienass @ilirmetazyrtar @NikollaLindita @SpeakerPelosi @SenatorLeahy @Quirinale ImageImageImageImage

Ukrainian #Jewish #mma fighter tortured in #Ukraine.
Matched tattoos on his knee to confirm it is Maxim Ryndovskiy. #OSINT #Ryndovskiy
Open source info = 2 versions:
1/ He was Pro-Chechen visiting DPR regularly
2/ Far right Ukrainians (Nazi supporters)
No solid intel yet.
#Facebook ID:100026417802478, so far, no Pro-Russian or pro-Chechen views have been found which would corroborate Version 1. His FB profile has friends in Ukraine and Russia, mostly female, no Chechens, no open source Pro-Russian propaganda. #OSINT #Ukraine #Ryndovskiy
His #Twitch account, he can be seen playing war games…
His videos:
*Note the Star of David on his logo, the only thing found so far in regards to Pro-Russian or Pro-Chechen views is nothing, just a love for #judaism and his roots.

"The unenthusiastic reception at @hmpbelmarsh cd not deter me, but it certainly contributed 2 my rapidly declining of perception of #Britain as a reliable partner in the area of #HumanRights".

@UN Special Rapporteur on #Torture, @NilsMelzer (first visit to see #Assange) 🧵
@hmpbelmarsh @UN @NilsMelzer @CraigMurrayOrg @johnpilger @medialens @caitoz @Jonathan_K_Cook @ggreenwald @jimmy_dore @johnmcdonnellMP @StellaMoris1 @wikileaks How thoroughly depressing: the #UK's "#Guantanamo" gaol treated @UN official, @NilsMelzer, investigating torture, WORSE than he's experienced in #Ukraine provincial prisons and in #Turkey.

Let that sink in 🤔 Deeply shameful for all UK citizens...

I appreciate & take the concerns of @NBPactueel very seriously. I have investigated & provided training & advice for police & military operations in contexts of war & violence for 20+ years & personally experienced their often very difficult & dangerous working environment. (1/7)
Throughout my career, I have also seen more than enough to be able to immediately distinguish allegations of #PoliceBrutality that require careful contextualization from cases that are plainly obvious & primarily require immediate correction. (2/7)
My two statements of 3 January 2022 may be harsh, but they are neither biased nor premature, but respond to well-documented facts that are clearly incompatible with international standards irrespective of any contextual factors & that require urgent & decisive remedy. (3/7)

1/10 The recently released @HBO documentary “The Forever Prisoner” ignores the ongoing brutal harms against Abu Zubaydah, the focus of the documentary, and all victims of the “War on Terror.”
2/10 The shortcomings of filmmaker Alex Gibney’s documentary remind us that justice delayed is justice denied and acknowledging harm should be a goal worth pursuing in and of itself.
3/10 Ultimately, Gibney’s film falls short of this goal.

They complain about vague legal definitions - esp. regarding INTENT to cause communal disharmony & say language needs amending. Also say PTA might allow 4 unlawful detention, confessions thru #torture + concerned about who can arrest and if law can be retrospectively applied.
Also that official recognised places of detention need to be used with proper registers & families informed.

Key facts #AssangeCase

- #Assange’s legally privileged conversations have been extensively spied upon by the US.…

The key witness in the US case against Assange is a convicted paedophile & fraudster who admits to fabricating the evidence in exchange for FBI deal.
#InternationalHumanRightsDay #AssangeCase

#Assange faces 175 years in a US supermax for revealing 100% true information. He will be tried under the Espionage Act which has no public interest defense & won’t be allowed First Amendment protections. This criminalises journalism
