It has been nearly three decades since Lebanon's civil war ended. But questions remain over the fate of thousands of people who went missing during that time. Although an independent commission is being formed, a general amnesty issued after the war means perpetrators will not face justice.

🇺🇸 Rendition Revisited Part II | People and Power

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iKxsc0MniFo
Former senior military personnel have warned that the United States could be about to re-introduce a programme of torture outlawed by the then President, Barack Obama, in 2009. Following the 9/11 attacks, a covert CIA programme led to individuals being abducted and subjected to so-called enhanced interrogation, techniques including sleep deprivation, wall-slamming and waterboarding. Current President Donald Trump has stated that torture works, he would bring back waterboarding, and "if we can, we should have worse". He has also pledged to keep the notorious Guantanamo detention facility open. Speaking to Al Jazeera, insiders who served in the Bush era say they fear this could all mean a resumption of the brutal treatment meted out to US captives after 2002. "You have President Trump, who is enamoured with torture, who has a thirst for brutality," says Mark Fallon, a former counterintelligence officer at the Naval Criminal Investigative Service. "I'm afraid that we're setting the conditions to return back to practices of brutality and state-sponsored torture." In this special two-part People & Power report, filmmakers Sarah Spiller, Callum Macrae and Mark Williams set out to investigate whether President Trump's administration will sanction a return to some of the darkest days of the so-called war on terror.

Uighur refugee: I’m not very optimistic | UpFront

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NzIC6Jf5hM0
Since April 2017, Chinese authorities have detained at least 800,000 and possibly more than two million Uighurs, ethnic Kazakhs and other members of Muslim minorities in so-called "re-education camps", according to testimony from United States State Department official, Scott Busby, before Congress on December 4. The Chinese government initially denied these camps exist. However, they've now legalised them and say these are merely vocational, educational training centres intended to "combat extremism" - despite the fact that some of those detained are reportedly university presidents or other Communist Party officials. Some say this is one of the world's most ignored human rights crisis. Ilshat Hassan, a Uighur activist and president of the Uyghur American Association, was forced to leave China in 2003 and has been separated from his family ever since. "They [police] used electric, the baton, and they electricised me twice in one interrogation," Hassan recalls his experience of being monitored as a teacher at a vocational training college, and having been arrested twice, beaten and electrocuted. Since losing contact with his family three years ago, Hassan's sister and two nephews have allegedly been arrested. On an UpFront Special Interview, Ilshat Hassan tells his story and reflects on the latest news about the Uighurs in China.

Was the Brexit vote free and fair? | UpFront

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UNgbNSFBYWE
The last year has seen mounting evidence of illegal campaign spending, data theft and foreign interference during the Brexit referendum campaign. Two pro-Brexit campaign organisations, Leave.Eu and Vote Leave, were fined and reported to the police by the Electoral Commission. The United Kingdom's National Crime Agency also started investigating billionaire Brexit campaigner, Arron Banks, who gave £12m ($15,277m) to Brexit campaigns, including UK Independence Party (UKIP) and Nigel Farage's campaign Leave.EU, making him the biggest donor in the country's history. So, was the 2016 Brexit referendum in the UK a free and fair vote? Carole Cadwalladr is an award-winning investigative journalist for the Guardian and The Observer, and broke many stories about wrongdoings in that 2016 vote. "If you're going to have a referendum, that is going to affect the foundation, the constitution of our country forever, you better do that within the law," she says. Steven Woolfe, member of the European Parliament and former member of the UKIP disagrees, saying "we absolutely won fair and square". He emphasises that the criminal inquiries that Cadwalladr referred to are "not beyond a criminal level of proof". On this UpFront Arena, we debate the extent of interference in that referendum and whether it could have affected the result.
