WATCH: Former US detainee David Hicks heckles minister

FORMER Guantanamo Bay detainee David Hicks has heckled Federal Attorney-General George Brandis at an awards ceremony in Sydney.

His outburst followed the release of a damning US Senate report which said the CIA used "brutal" torture tactics to interrogate suspects in the wake of the 9/11 attacks.

"Hey, my name is David Hicks," he shouted, as Senator Brandis wrapped up his address at a Human Rights Awards function.

The awards ceremony was being held on the same day the US Senate released a damning report into CIA torture which concluded that the intelligence agency used "brutal" and authorised methods.
