Amnesty group presents program
By SHARON SHERIDAN
" 'The next day ... the interrogation
continued, accompanied by hard blows
to my face and body. They applied in
tense electric current to my hands.... For
21 days I was held in the CNI's (Central
Nacional de Informaciones) hidden
premises.... On each of the first 14 days
which followed my arrest I was subjected
to both physical and psychological tor
ture .... I was seen by the doctor after
nearly all the torture sessions ....I was
given a document to sign which stated
that I had been well treated. It also con
tained statements which I had made
under pressure, and included others
which I had never made at all. When I
refused to sign I was threatened with fur
ther torture. Under such circumstances, I
had to sign. ' "
Fernando Benjamin Reveco Soto, tor
tured by the Chilean secret police force
CNI in 1982, recorded this description in
Amnesty International's recently released
report, Torture In The Eighties.
The April 3 release of the 263-page
report, which cites allegations of torture
and ill-treatment of prisoners in 98 coun
tries, signaled the beginning of a two-year -Campaign
for the Abolition of Torture
by Amnesty International, a human rights
"While governments universally and
collectively condemn torture, more than a
third of the world's governments have us
ed or tolerated torture or ill-treatment of
prisoners in the 1980s," the report stated.
"In Amnesty International's ex
perience, legislative prohibition is not
enough," it stated. "Immediate steps are
needed to confront torture and other
cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or
punishment wherever they occur and to
eradicate them totally."
The report outlines a 12-point program
for preventing torture. Among other
things, the program calls for independent
investigation of reports of torture and
prosecution of alleged torturers. It asks
governments to "use all available chan
nels to intercede with governments ac
cused of torture" and to "ratify interna
tional instruments containing safeguards
and remedies against torture."
Debra Reisner, torture campaign coor
dinator for the Chapel Hill Amnesty In
ternational group, and other members in
the congressional district presented the
program and other information about the
campaign to Ken Kirby, special assistant
to Rep. Ike Andrews.
Groups are urging congressmen to
write letters to countries assigned them
condemning torture,. Kirby said.
"If he's (Andrews) convinced that a
letter from him will be worthwhile, I have
no doubt that he'll give it his considera
tion," Kirby said. "We're going to sit
down and discuss all of this in detail."
Kirby said he hopes every American
would agree with Amnesty Inter
national's position on torture.
"I can't imagine any American not
agreeing with their goals, their basic

philosophy," he said. "I don't think I
have ever met a more dedicated group of
people in my life. I was really impressed
with them. I learned a lot."
While he does not know if the cam
paign will be effective, Kirby said,
"Nothing ventured, nothing gained.
"1 think that's the way Amnesty Inter
national presented it," he said. Trying to
get the U.S. government to use its in
fluence to try to alleviate world torture
"certainly is a noble and worthwhile
goal," he said.
"We're not so naive to think that in
two years we'll be able to abolish torture
everywhere," Reisner said
Writing letters and publicizing the issue
of torture is "mostly to let governments
know that their activities are being ob
served, letting them know that the world
is watching them," she said. "It doesn't
sound like much, but it can be quite ef
fective." "I think human rights are international
concerns," Reisner said. "And if some
one's rights are being violated anywhere
in the world, I think there's concern that
anyone in the world could be subjected to
this. And that means us.
"Part of it is you're looking out for
yourself, and the other part of it is you're
looking out for your fellow man," she

TO UNIVERSITY OF NOilTH CAROLINA
CHAPEL HILL DORMITORY STUDENTS
During the reconnection of student telephone service in August of 1983
there was considerable confusion and misunderstanding regarding the provision
of Custom Calling features which resulted in some students receiving unrequested
Custom Calling features. On behalf of Southern Bell I want to apologize" again
for .any inconvenience, confusion, or misunderstanding.
In order to avoid any similar occurrences in the future, we will implement
new procedures for service connections beginning with the 1984 fall semester.
As in the past, dormitory students will still be able to fill out an,
application form for telephone service. We believe this method is a time-saver
and convenience to you and to the Company. However, this form will be changed
to avoid future problems.
(1) It will include a listing of the various Custom Calling Services
available with a method for selecting those which you may desire.
(2) It will show an itemization of the charges for these services as well
as charges for service connection, basic services and additional directory
(3) To avoid misunderstandings regarding proper authorization of the services
requested, the application will require the signature of the customer responsible
for the service and will be carbonized so that you may retain a copy of the
application for your records. .
C4) Any subsequent marketing by telephone of Custom Calling features to
the students will be followed by a confirmation letter to them which will itemize
the services ordered, the charges for those services and the date of the order.
' - ' .
We value your business and your confidence, and sincerely hope these
arrangements will help you in planning your telephone needs for the fall
semester. Should you have any further questions, please call 832-3377.
