You’ll be able to read here the report by Dick Marty, the man in the Council of Europe responsible for prising the lid off this horrible and murky practise of state-sanctioned kidnapping.

We learn that there were two main prisons, in Poland and in Romania; that at least 70 people were kept in detention where they were interrogated, i.e. tortured, without any recourse to lawyers or the Red Cross; and that among the detained was a child of seven years old. CIA agents reported directly to the national executives’ office – Nato countries offered blanket exemptions to usual legal process under anti-terror laws.

Channel 4’s TV documentary programme “Dispatches” will blow the cover off this hateful affair next Monday.
