Camp Delta
The human rights body alleges prisoners face force-feeding and abuse at the detention camp Reuters

The damning report into the CIA's abuse of suspected Islamic militants exposed the "horrific torture" that was carried out by the US in the past, but the Obama administration continues to abuse prisoners in Guantanamo Bay, according to Reprieve.

The human rights organisation told IBTimes UK that detainees in the US-run Cuban detention camp, otherwise known as 'Camp Delta', have been force-fed and endure "freezing" steel cells.

"The Senate report has revealed to the American people – and the world – the horrific torture that was carried out by the US in the past," said Alka Pradhan, a US counsel who represents detainees at Guantanamo.

"Yet the Obama administration continues to be responsible for ongoing torture and abuse at Guantanamo Bay, from gratuitous forcible cell extractions and freezing steel cells to brutal, punitive force-feeding, which was denounced as torture by the United Nations (UN).

"I have seen the force-feeding video tapes, which a judge has ordered to be released, and they are truly disturbing.

"Yet the government is doing everything in its power to stop these tapes ever seeing the light of day, much as it tried to stop the Senate report from being released.

"The American people deserved to know what was done in their name years ago, and they deserve to know what is still being done in their name today."

The comments come after an investigation into CIA "enhanced interrogation techniques" from the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence (SSCI) was published.

The report revealed that CIA detainees were tortured and subjected to a series of "techniques", which were far more brutal than previous feared.

The committee said that the CIA carried out torture techniques on terror suspects in the wake of 9/11 while misleading the nation with narratives of life-saving interrogations.

"These techniques did significant damage to America's standing in the world and made it harder to pursue our interests with allies and partners," President Obama said in reaction to the report.

"I hope that today's report can help us leave these techniques where they belong, in the past."
