The United States has many secret jails across the world, where prisoners were treated inhumanely, says the Human Rights Record of the United States in 2007 issued in Beijing on Thursday.
"Secret prison" and "torturing prisoners" have become synonymous with America, says the report which was released by the Information Office of the State Council of China.
In May 2007, the UN special rapporteur on the protection of human right while countering terrorism said after his visit to the United States the latter has detained 700 people in Afghanistan and 18,000 in Iraq for reasons related to the fight against terrorism.
The special rapporteur expressed his concern over the conditions of detainees at Guantanamo Bay and other secret detention facilities, the lack of justice protection and access to fair trial for terrorist suspects, as well as the rendition of suspects.
He also expressed his disappointment that the US government had refused to allow him to visit Guantanamo Bay and other places of secret detention.
In addition to Guantanamo Bay where prisoners were subject to gruesome tortures, the United States also ran secret facilities in Jordan and Ethiopia, where detainees were brutally treated.
The Washington Post reported on December 1, 2007 that the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) had been running a secret jail on the outskirts of Jordan capital Amman since 2000, where many non-Jordanian terrorism suspects had been detained and interrogated with severe abuse.
