10 Secret Prisons Governments Are Hiding

10) CIA Prison In the aftermath of 9/11, the existence of
a CIA prison in Romania was frequently reported – but its location was unknown. This remained the case until 2011, when the
Associated Press and German media found that the intelligence agency HAD indeed operated
a secret prison in the capital, Bucharest. It was the country’s ‘National Registry
for Classified Information’ headquarters, a government building, which was chosen as
a makeshift prison where terrorist suspects were interrogated. The prison was part of a network of so-called
‘black sites’, which the CIA operated overseas. All these prisons were closed by 2006, and
the CIA’s detention and interrogation program ended in 2009. But it wasn’t JUST the location of the prison
that was being kept a secret. Activities at the prison were also kept under
wraps. In 2011 and 2012, two terrorism suspects filed
a lawsuit alleged that they had been illegally held and tortured at ‘black sites’ in
Romania and Lithuania. The European Court of Human Rights found that
the Romanian prison had indeed contravened the European Human Rights Convention, which
prohibits torture, illegal detention and the death penalty. As such, Romania AND Lithuania were ordered
to pay €100,000 each to both complainants. 9) Xinjiang Internment Camps Recent satellite imagery has indicated that
a series of secret prisons are operating in China – Internment camps across the region
of Xinjiang for the detention of Uighurs. Uighurs are the country’s predominantly
Muslim minority. According to The Week, Uighurs have had a
long history of rebellion against Chinese rule. An INCREASING resentment among Uighurs towards
Beijing, however, has led to a string of terrorist attacks over the past decade, which have led
to action from Chinese authorities. As such, WIRED reports that Uighurs are being
kept under surveillance by the government, with thousands being sent to detention and
indoctrination centers. ABC News estimates that 2 million Uighurs
and other Muslims have been rounded up and detained in these camps, where they are forced
to undergo patriotic training and so-called ‘de-extremification’. They aren’t put on trial, have no access
to lawyers, or the right to challenge the decision. Worse still, the length of their detention
is indefinite since it’s the authorities who decide when an individual has been ‘transformed’. Beijing, however, has repeatedly denied the
allegations, saying people WILLINGLY attend special ‘vocational schools’, which combat
‘terrorism and religious extremism’. 8) Camp 7 Somewhere in Guantanamo Bay lies one of the
most secretive prison units in the world. Camp 7, as it’s known, was built in a hidden
location away from the main prison. In fact, it was SO carefully hidden that no
one knew of its existence for 2 YEARS after it opened in 2006. The government has classified Camp 7’s location
and officials won’t divulge any details about it. What we DO know, however, is that it houses
15 ‘high-value detainees’, including supposed 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed [ca-lid
sheek] and 4 alleged co-conspirators. Some of the only other details to have emerged
include prisoner allegations of mistreatment while at the camp. During a tribunal hearing, one of the camp’s
inmates, Ramzi Bin al Shibh, [Ramsey bin al Sheeb] complained that his cell always vibrated
and made strange noises which ‘prohibit[ed] him from functioning’. He believed the noises were part of a campaign
to punish him. The US military denied these allegations of
psychological torture and prosecutors at the hearing questioned the inmate’s mental state,
suggesting that he was delusional. 7) The Salt Pit One of the first ‘black sites’ where suspected
al-Qaeda terrorists were interrogated after the 9/11 attacks was a secret underground
CIA prison in Afghanistan, known as ‘The Salt Pit’. In 2014, the US government declassified a
US Senate Report on the CIA’s Detention and Interrogation Program, which operated
there during this time. The report revealed that detainees at The
Salt Pit were shackled naked to walls in total darkness in a facility that was reportedly
45 degrees Fahrenheit and played loud music around the clock. Detainees were given only buckets for their
waste. The report described in particular the treatment
of Ridha al-Najjar who was the first detainee to be held by the agency at The Salt Pit after
it opened in September 2002. CIA interrogators described al-Najjar as ‘clearly
a broken man’ and ‘on the verge of complete breakdown’ as a result of the severe procedures
inflicted on him at the prison. In fact, one of the interrogators at The Salt
Pit was reported to have said that the prison was an effective place for interrogations
because it is the closest thing he had seen to a ‘dungeon.’ 6) US Floating Prison Criminal activity isn’t just restricted
to land – in fact, so much of it happens on the ocean, that it needs its very own prison
system. In 2012 the US Southern Command was tasked
with leading the war on drugs in the Americas and consequently launched a multinational
military campaign called Operation Martillo. Its aim is to prevent the passage of cocaine
and other hard drugs – mainly from South to Central America – by deploying Coast Guard
cutters to cruise the Pacific Ocean on the hunt for smugglers. When these cutters capture a boat transporting
drugs, the smugglers are brought onboard and shackled to the deck until the Coast Guard
makes arrangements for them to be transported back to the US for trial. They can be detained on these boats for weeks
at a time. And this rather unconventional type of prison
has indeed been successful in the prevention of crime. In September 2017, the Coast Guard seized
more than 22,000kgs of cocaine and heroin in San Diego, worth an estimated $679.3 million. 5) Sednaya Over the course of Syria’s 8-year civil
war, tens of thousands of people have been detained at Syria’s high-security Sednaya
[said-nigh-ah] prison. But what’s NOT been revealed are the details
surrounding the prison itself, since it’s been off limits to journalists and monitoring
groups in recent years. Amnesty International, however, is one group
that knows enough to justify its labelling of the prison as a ‘human slaughterhouse’. The organization estimates that every week
20-50 people are secretly taken from their cells to be hanged in the middle of the night,
meaning that as many as 13,000 people have been killed in Sednaya [said-nigh-ah] since
2011. Meanwhile, many others are alleged to have
died after being repeatedly tortured and systematically deprived of food, water and medicine. In 2017 following the declassification of
aerial photographs, the US alleged that the Syrian government had constructed a crematorium
at the prison. Its purpose being to dispose of murdered prisoners
in order to hide evidence of the shocking extent of the killings. The Syrian government denied the US’s allegations
of the crematorium at the prison, as well as Amnesty’s allegations of mass executions. 4) Azouli Azouli is Egypt’s secret prison. In fact, it’s so secret that it can’t
be seen by civilians and even its prisoners are taken there blindfolded. It lies inside an extensive military camp
in a city 62 miles north-east of Cairo. And it is here, on the third floor, that hundreds
of prisoners are held in cramped cells before they are reported to simply just disappear
– outside of judicial oversight. According to former inmate testimonies, the
majority of Azouli [ah-zoo-lee] detainees are Salafis, ultraconservative Muslims, who
are suspected of involvement in militant attacks. The testimonies also alleged that detainees
have been disappearing from Azouli since 2013. Prisoners are said to be routinely electrocuted,
beaten and hung by their wrists for hours, until they surrender specific information,
give a confession or are simply deemed of no further use to their interrogators. In fact, The Guardian reports that up to FOUR
HUNDRED prisoners are still being tortured at the prison. And since the prisoners at Azouli [ah-zoo-lee]
are held outside of Egypt’s legal system, this means that their jailers are able to
act without fear of even hypothetical consequences. 3) Labor Camps Satellite images released in 2017 revealed
the extent of North Korea’s network of secret labor camps. The country’s capital, Pyongyang, denies
the existence of its political penal labor camps, known as kwan-li-so [spoken as it looks]. Instead, it says prisoners in its ‘re-education’
penitentiaries, known as kyo-hwa-so, [key-yo hua so] are treated with ‘warm love and
consideration’. But in a report from the Committee for Human
Rights in North Korea, humanitarian workers and investigators detail horrific treatment
far removed from ‘warm love and consideration’. They write that the brutal and arduous labor,
including logging and mining, combined with a grossly inadequate diet and lack of medicine,
leads to a ‘dreadfully large number of deaths in detention.’ Former prisoners told the Committee that the
majority of inmates are detained for ‘crimes that are not really crimes.’ That’s because the North Korean Criminal
Code allows severe punishment for acts as inoffensive as unauthorized gatherings and
forms of dissent such as anti-state propaganda and demonstrations. In 2014, the United Nations Commission of
Inquiry estimated that as many as 120,000 people were detained in North Korean political
prison camps. 2) Penny Lane In the years that followed 9/11, yet another
classified CIA operation was being carried out. This time it took place between 2003 and 2006
in 8 small cottages in Guantanamo Bay dubbed ‘Penny Lane’. When 632 prisoners streamed into Guantanamo
Bay in 2002, the CIA recognized it as an unprecedented opportunity to identify sources of al-Qaeda. As such, the organization recruited double
agents from the suspected terrorists held in Guantanamo Bay. It was part of a secret program, which promised
prisoners freedom, safety, and millions of dollars from the agency’s secret war chest,
in exchange for helping the US infiltrate al-Qaeda abroad. Dozens of prisoners were evaluated for the
role but only a few were turned into double agent spies who actually signed agreements
to work for the CIA. Some of the men who took part in the program
did indeed help the CIA track down and kill some of al-Qaeda’s top operatives. But the US government also admitted that at
least 16% of the operatives rejoined terrorist groups in the fight against America. 1) LGBT Prisons In 2018 a Russian National Government Organization
claimed that dozens of LGBT people had suffered ‘abusive treatment’ in secret prisons. Testimonies alleged that these actions had
been ‘directed by the highest officials in Chechnya.’ [ch-etch-neey-ah] LGBT people were reportedly abducted and locked
up in secret detention sites purely because of their sexual orientation. The organization’s claims are contained
within a report prepared alongside Russian newspaper ‘Novaya Gazeta’, which reported
that Chechen police had rounded up more than 100 gay men in 2017 ‘in connection with
their non-traditional sexual orientation, or suspicion of such.’ It claimed that 3 were killed while many others
were subject to prison beatings and electro-shock torture. In fact, according to the National Government
Organization, many people have fled the country over the past year to escape persecution. Head of the Chechen Republic Ramzan Kadyrov’s
[cad-ah-rov] press secretary denied the allegations of secret prisons based on his denial of the
existence of homosexuals in Chechnya. He said that ‘it is impossible to detain
and oppress those who simply don’t exist in
the Republic.’

  1. Number 10 ended with the CIA basically screwing over Romania and Lithuania as they had been punished for America violating human rights on their soil.

  2. 7:04 Given the previous entries, I think the US needs to shut the fuck up there. Not saying Syria is in the right though.

  3. Y'alls channel has some OUTSTANDING videos! Seeing how we both know how these algorithms work and how it benefits us to be subscribed to eachother, and I can always keep up with y'alls uploads… if y'all are not subscribed to my channel yet, it would promote us 5 fold and benifits us 9 to 12 times more if we are both subscribed to eachother. So hit the subcribe button on my channel if y'all haven't already keeping the perpetual promoting in full swing and lets kick ass together on this YouTube video greatness!

  4. Not the thousands of people in Syria or the hundreds of thousands of people in China and North Korea, but a couple hundred gay people in Russia is the biggest human rights violation on Earth…lmao.

  5. I’m interested in finding out how well China’s de-extremism camps work for them. And sorry, but I’m all for torture for terrorists, mass murderers, child molesters, rapists, and dirty politicians.

  6. Chechnya, has the answer to one of the subversive groups causing problems here in the US. LOL!
    .. let the hateful comments begin.

  7. Awww.. Poor terrorists can't cut people's heads off and blow themselves up and are getting what they deserve.. Torture all those f#cks..

  8. The pattern of your talking pitch is really annoying. It's same pattern like you're trying too hard, and the ending is also annoying because it's also the same.

  9. Aren't Muslim countries locking up gay people? Stoning people to death? Giving human rights the finger in general? But when China does it to muslims its suddenly horrible?

  10. If we know it's because they want us to. Who do you think produces and pays for the anti- smoking commercials? The cigarette companies ! The government control's everything you see and do through control of your information. Wake up!

  11. Weird how the prison was found out 1 decade after 9/11, knowing that Osama was killed in 2011…
    Wait a minute…

  12. 9 1.1 was an inside job. Those buildings did not follow the rules of Physics they way they came down. They had help. No planes hitting them could have caused that cascading effect. There was some sort of help preparing the buildings to be internally destroyed so collapse was possible. So the so called detainee 9.1 1 terrorist must be kept in a hidden prison to protect from the truth being revealed.

  13. The Foundation's facilities are a prison within a prison.
    Not to mention that all of them are located in an undisclosed location.

  14. It's probably not to do with their sexuality it's most likely the shit they cause. Becuse groups like lgbt join with groups like antifa which cause havok.

  15. I have never heard of this Chanel before but today in the UK it’s Sunday and I always say lazy Sunday is time to chill, so I came across these and I wish I did long ago. Learned so much and is so interesting! Thank you so much for the videos love Richie. Ps keep up the good work !

  16. the Muslim concentration camps are used for organ harvesting too… they literally test everyone in them just to see if their organs are viable and compatible… illegal organ harvesting is a very, very big thing in China… and it's usually the religious minorities taken as political prisoners that face this atrocity…

  17. Shhhh🤫 don't tell anyone about this video it's a "secret". Lol 🤣 give me a break. Sounds like a bunch of hearsay or rumors to me.

  18. This is but one reason I hope the all mighty USA, falls soon. They are just as evil as their enemies.

  19. Martin…..at 1 minute and 42 seconds in, you have you graphics located over what appears to be a shit load of graves….seriously, bro….Graves.

  20. another example of the typical british cuckold islam apologist. this is why their country was invaded and defeated without a shot being fired.

  21. anyone else think number 8 should have been made number 7 just because of the name more suited for number 7 spot

  22. Well none of these are secrets are they if you know about them to make a video you idiots 🤦🏻‍♂️

  23. Is that’s where they Put Muslim people? . So everyone is working with them ….Allah will read them justice one day and bring it to lit

  24. I guarantee his cell was actually vibrating and omitting those paralyzing sounds. It’s the CIA and you attacked America. They’re gonna do everything to punish you and they have some serious technology to do it. And who’s gonna believe you if you say something about the walls.

  25. It's safe to assume anything that's considered a "Secret" facility, Base. Prison, or installation…..is NOT a Secret. The real secret Facilities and or bases are SECRET and are not going to end up on YouTube for the world to see. Videos like these should be titled "Unacknowledged Government Facilities" rather than Secret

  26. That was not derogatory towards Catholics it is more towards the Vatican in general and Jesuits the Jesuit militant order in case you don't know folks Pope Francis is the first Jesuit Pope ever look at the old they take it's a bloody mess you know I'll be in there bad side it forgets the Commandment Thou shalt not murder rather quickly soda who has the world's America's best water tower true

  27. There will always be secret prisons. More to the point weather you like it or not. Thay work to get information. Formally stopping several attacks in london…
    And yes, terrorists don't deserve human rights. This day off age is redicules. People get offended by been told to fuck off. And that's why the planet is getting worse not better.
