Dick Marty: ”high-value detainees” were held at secret CIA prisons in Poland and Romania
[08/06/2007 13:00:00] Parliamentary Assembly rapporteur Dick Marty (Switzerland, ALDE) reveals new evidence that US ”high-value detainees” were held in secret CIA prisons in Poland and Romania during the period 2002-2005 and alleges a secret agreement among NATO allies in October 2001 which provided the basic framework for this and other illegal CIA activities in Europe.
In an explanatory memorandum made public today, Mr Marty says he has cross-referenced the credible testimonies of over 30 members of intelligence services in the US and Europe with analysis of ”data strings” from the international flight planning system.
Dutch NOS TV news says:
All over the world, people have been kidnaped and been tortured in centers in Poland and Romania, the report says.

However, the Secretary General of NATO is Jaap de Hoop Scheffer, failed party leader of the Dutch Christian Democrats.
He got the high paying NATO job as a consolation prize.
Don’t count on him to take responsibility.
