Afghanistan's intelligence service department termed the report of Amnesty International on Afghan detention facilities as groundless and rejected it Wednesday.

"The report of Amnesty International on detention centers of National Security Directorate (NSD) is based on information provided by biased elements," spokesman of NSD Syed Ansari told journalists at a press conference.

In its newly-released report, the London-based watch dog called on the international troops stationed in Afghanistan not to hand over detainees to Afghan NSD's authorities because they would be maltreated.

Citing the report as baseless, Ansari said that both Afghan Human Rights Commission and International Committee for Red Cross (ICRC) have visited the detention centers of NSD and expressed satisfaction.

He also added those countries serving with international troops in Afghanistan can visit the detainees at detention centers after handing them over to Afghan security bodies.

"National Security Directorate as a national institution is apolitical body and does not violate the rights of any one and does not resort to violence," the spokesman said.
