Alleged CIA prisons in Europe to be discussed Council of Europe session

Poland, Lithuania, Spain and Portugal will be asked to provide full disclosure about alleged CIA prisons for terrorist suspects at the Council of Europe Parliamentary Assembly today.
On Saturday, the Council of Europe's Commissioner for Human Rights, Thomas Hammarberg told Poland’s TVP public broadcaster that,” It is clear that Poland hosted secret CIA prisons between December 2002 and September 2003. We know who was held there and what interrogation methods were used. They can be described as torture.”

Poland's president during the period under investigation, Aleksander Kwasniewski has repeatedly denied the existence of any such CIA prisons.

Meanwhile, the assembly will consider a further report that reaffirms that torture is an inadmissible violation of human rights.

The report nevertheless argues that some other human rights may be suspended in the so-called “war on terrorism.” (nh/pg)
