LONDON, (PIC)– Rights groups in London have issued a well-received report documenting the West Bank-governing PA’s crime of torture against Palestinians held in its prisons.

The document, prepared by the Arab Organization for Human Rights in the UK and the Middle East Monitor, contains facts and figures of the PA’s systematic torture, and includes a video record of victim testimonies.

The testimonies reveal the torture was implemented through high-profile decisions in the PA security establishment and disclose previously unknown torture methods.

After thousands of official documents were disclosed on human rights violations in Iraq, the Arab Organization for Human Rights said it was concerned about the largely uncovered abuses in the West Bank. Most of the information was collected from accounts by prisoners and PA security officers.
