Johannesburg – Saud Memon, a man kidnapped by the FBI in South Africa, is listed on page 460 of the Torture Report as number 100 in the list of detainees held and tortured by the CIA between 2002 and 2008. As such, South African leaders who knew about the mechanisms of his detention, torture and death must be held accountable under international law.

South Africa signed the United Nations Convention Against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment in January 1993, and ratified it in December 1998.
