Investigations into numerous alleged abuses at Abu Ghraib Prison and Al-Ademeya Palace based on reports from CACI and Titan translation employees. Alleged abuses include the physical beatings and humiliation of various detainees, forced exercise in a heated room, burning with cigarettes, electrocution, and sexual and religious humiliation. One translator interviewed an Iraqi female who stated that she had been stripped, beaten, doused with water, sexually humiliated, and denied medical care at Abu Ghraib Prison, Iraq. The Office of the Staff Judge Advocate at Camp Victory found probable cause to believe that the alleged offenses did not occur.
