Hi Greg here with my first post on Multistory. What follows is my communication with the CSO on the issue of the CACI contract…
Ref 21013 CACI Ltd Irish Census
Contractor Links With Alleged Abuse in Abu Ghraib
I am conducting an initial enquiry into CACI Ltd who are conducting
the data capture and analysis on your behalf for the up and coming
census. Could you please comment on the following:
Has there been due diligence conducted into the background of this
company and its US affiliates?
Are you aware that CACI Inc, a US subsidiary of CACI Ltd has been
involved in a number of court cases in the USA relating to
made against the company and members of its staff of abuse of
prisoners in Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq?
Are you aware that in September 2009 CACI Inc sought immunity from
prosecution in the US Court of Appeals and won on the basis that it
operated under the US military chain of command was this afforded
government contractor immunity?
Do you not feel, that under the current provisions of the Patriot Act
in the United States, that allowing a company whose subsidiary is
protected in law as part of the US military chain of command, access
to the personal data of every Irish person could pose threat to the
human rights of Irish citizens and a breach of trust with the Irish
I look forward to your reply.
