Who Is Prisoner 650 ?

Who is Prisoner 650? Aafia Siddiqui: The 'Grey Lady' of Bagram Who is Prisoner 650? A grey lady haunts the notorious U.S. controlled Bagram Prison of Afghanistan. The scene of the notorious murders of two Afghan men committed by U.S. troops through the use of torture in flagrant violation of the Geneva Convention. According to prison sources and international advocates, including leader of the Pakistani Tehrik-i-Insaf Party, Imran Khan, and activist Yvonne Ridley, there is a Pakistani woman who is languishing in the draconian Bagram Prison in Afghanistan. Her name is not known, her nationality is believed to be Pakistani, and her screams have been heard for years. Reports of her existence have been corroborated by former prisoners of Bagram, including Moazzam Begg and four Arabs who escaped from the Soviet-built detention and torture center in 2004. Begg wrote in his book that during his detention that he, “began to hear the screams of a woman next door.” It is not known the name, identity, profession, nationality, or charges lobbied against Prisoner 650 in Bagram Prison. Officials deny that a woman is imprisoned in Bagram, but five former prisoners have testified publicly to hearing the cries of a woman inside the prison. There is some speculation that Prisoner 650 is an enemy of the Pakistani government being held as a favor to the Musharraf government, while others contend that she is another casualty of the haphazard U.S.-led War on Terror in Afghanistan. Whoever Prisoner 650 is, she deserves our support, a voice, a fair trial, and a reason to cease her screams. There is absolutely no reason for a woman’s screams to be heard through the walls of any prison in this world. Let us press our governments for a response to who Prisoner 650 is and press for her release and for her name and may whoever tortures her hear her screams through the night for as long as they live.
