Australia’s link to secret Iraq prisons

Australia was an “integral” element of the potentially illegal detention of prisoners of war at a secret Iraqi desert prison in 2003, according to a British newspaper, citing a US military document.

The revelation has led to the Public Interest Advocacy Centre, which is investigating Australia’s involvement in illegal detentions in Iraq, to claim that the Australian military might have been complicit in war crimes by handing detainees over to the so-called “black site” known as H1.
