Mustafa KrerCanada must have known that Libyans had tortured a dual national while he was in custody for eight years on terrorism charges, Human Rights Watch said. Human Rights Watch said it has learned that Mustafa Krer, 46, was likely tortured by Libyan authorities while he was in Libyan custody for suspected terrorist ties from 2002-10.

Krer told the rights group that Canadian interrogators had visited him at the Abu Salim prison near Tripoli. He claims to have been beaten with sticks and cables by Libyan authorities and confined to a "steel box" for up to five days at a time.
