MOSCOW, April 02. /ITAR-TASS/. US President Barack Obama’s administration is violating the UN Convention Against Torture by delaying the release of a report on the tortures used by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and by refusing to punish those responsible, the Russian Foreign Ministry’s commissioner for human rights, democracy and the rule of law Konstantin Dolgov said on Twitter on Wednesday, April 2.

“US senators continue to insist on the publication of the Senate report on the torture methods that were widely used by the CIA under George W. Bush. Judging from the news leaks, investigations disclosed new torture methods that have no been made public before,” Dolgov said.

“The materials obtained by journalists confirm that security services used tortures in violation of the US international obligations. The Obama administration is violating the Convention Against Torture by delaying declassification of the report and by refusing to bring those responsible to account,” the diplomat said.
