ワシントン(CNN) アシュクロフト米司法長官は17日、米中央情報局(CIA)との契約でアフガニスタンの米軍基地に滞在中、拘束されたアフガニスタン人に暴行を加えたとして、ノースカロライナ州の連邦大陪審が民間人男性を起訴したと発表した。イラクやアフガニスタンでの虐待問題で、民間人が起訴されたのはこれが初めて。

起訴状によると、同州在住のデービッド・パサロ被告は昨年6月19日から20日にかけ、パキスタン国境近くに設けられた米軍基地内の収容施設で、アフガン人男性を尋問する際、大型の懐中電灯などを使って殴るけるの暴行を繰り返した。この男性は21日に死亡したという。死因をめぐっては、米人権団体が昨年、国防総省に質問状を出していた。死亡したアフガン人男性は、収容施設前で投降し、基地へのロケット弾攻撃に関与した疑いで取り調べを受けていたという。

パサロ被告は02年12月からCIAの仕事を請け負い、この収容施設では昨年6月初めから米軍兵の補佐役を務めた。同被告は17日朝、州内の職場で逮捕された。有罪となれば、最高で40年の刑を言い渡される可能性がある。

Accused contractor has confrontational past
N.C. man indicted in Afghan detainee's beating

Friday, June 18, 2004 Posted: 1826 GMT (0226 HKT)


RALEIGH, North Carolina (AP) -- A CIA contractor charged with fatally assaulting an Afghan detainee had been fired from a Connecticut police department after an assault 14 years ago and a history of run-ins with wives and neighbors, authorities and acquaintances said.

The contractor, 38-year-old David A. Passaro, was charged Thursday with two counts each of assault and assault with a dangerous weapon -- a flashlight.

Passaro was charged in connection with the June 21, 2003, death of Abdul Wali. Wali had gone to a U.S. base in Afghanistan on his own accord that month and surrendered to authorities. They suspected him of participating in rocket attacks against the base and wanted to talk to him.

Three days after he surrendered, he was dead, and authorities accuse Passaro of beating him. Passaro was not charged with murder because no autopsy was performed to establish a cause of death, Justice Department officials said.

It was the first time civilian charges have been brought in the investigation of prisoner abuse in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Attorney General John Ashcroft, in Washington, D.C., said the indictment sends a message that "the United States will not tolerate criminal acts of brutality" against detainees. Wali's case initially was referred to the Justice Department by the CIA in November.

Passaro was arrested at Fort Bragg, in North Carolina. He was on leave from a civilian Army medical job at Fort Bragg while doing the contract work for the CIA, according to a statement by the U.S. Army Special Operations Command.

Passaro's attorney, Gerald Beaver, said he and Passaro were surprised because "it was my understanding that he would be allowed to surrender if there were any indictments."

People who know him say Passaro has a history of aggressive behavior.

A spokeswoman for the Hartford Police Department, Nancy Mulroy, said Passaro graduated in 1990 from the city's police academy but was relieved of duty after he was arrested by state police before completing his probationary period.

Though arrested on felony assault charges in the case, he was convicted in July 1991 of breach of peace, state police said. He paid a $100 fine.

Passaro's ex-wife, Kerry Passaro, said her husband had assaulted a neighbor.

"He was violent toward me throughout the marriage," she told North Carolina television stations.

North Carolina records show David and Kerry Passaro were divorced in February 2001, and that Passaro remarried in March 2002. Since he remarried, Harnett County deputy sheriffs had been called to the rural house twice to investigate domestic fights and again to look into a complaint that Passaro fired a gun at a neighbor's dog.

If convicted, Passaro faces up to 40 years in prison and a $1 million fine. He was ordered held without bond after an initial appearance before a federal magistrate in Raleigh and will have a detention hearing Tuesday.

A former Green Beret medic and Army ranger, Passaro began his contract with the CIA in December 2002. He arrived at the Afghan base in mid-May 2003, a few weeks before the alleged abuse occurred, U.S. officials said.
