A SECURITY and counter-terrorism expert will discuss why he believes torture doesn’t work at a free lecture in Hampshire on May 28.

Mark Fallon will talk about his involvement in significant counter-terrorism investigations at the lecture at Portsmouth University.

He will examine the impact of the 9/11 attacks on US policies and practices, including the origins of the CIA Rendition, Detention and Interrogation programme.

He was also deputy commander and chief investigator of the US Department of Defence taskforce created by President Bush to investigate the Al-Qaeda terrorist network for trials before military commissions.

Mark, said: “As a former interrogator for America’s intelligence agencies, I know better than anyone that torture does not work. I’ve been in the room with terrorists and interrogators and I know that the practice makes America less safe. I am looking forward to visiting the University to speak about why torture fails to deliver security and why I continue to push for legislation to ensure we never torture again.”

He will be at Portsmouth University from 6pm to 7pm to book a place visit eventbrite.co.uk
