European MP’s Will Probe CIA Jails Claim
Posted on Jan 12, 2006
Guardian: Euro MPs are to investigate claims that the CIA detained suspected terrorists at secret prisons in eastern Europe. A committee of inquiry made up of 46 MEPs was set up yesterday to examine allegations that detainees have been held in Romania, Poland, or other countries.
The CIA’s policy of taking suspects to countries where they might be at risk of ill-treatment, a practice known as extraordinary rendition, is already the subject of separate inquiries in Italy, Spain, Germany and by the Council of Europe. | story
Also, documents show that the U.S. Army may have ended some detainee abuse probes prematurely. | story
