I have been tortured in different kinds of ways. There are no human rights over there. That means they could do whatever they wanted to with us. They tortured me to force me to sign papers and every time I’ve refused, they kept on torturing me in different kind of ways. They really tried everything to break us including psychological and physical torture. I myself got tortured by electroshocks and waterboarding. I have seen also kids 9 years and 12 years old inside the camp. It was very difficult to watch how those kids getting beaten up in front of me.
