MOSCOW, December 11 (Sputnik) — Thailand has never permitted the United States to construct detention facilities and conduct tortures on its territory, announced a senior Thai official, as cited by Reuters.
"We have never allowed the US to use our space for detention or torture and there have never been any requests to do so," Paradorn Pattanathabutr, a former National Security Council chief, told the news agency.
Numerous media reports had previously stated that such secret prisons existed in Afghanistan, Morocco, Iraq, Thailand and other countries. However, the Thai government has denied this information, claiming that there were no secret sites on the country’s territory.
According to the US Senate report, the US government has been running a secret prison in Thailand called "Detention Site Green." The detention facility has allegedly been used for interrogation purposes since the early 2000s and the Thai government was reported to have allowed its establishment, according to the International Business Times.
