Dick Marty presents his second report on secret detentions in Europe

Strasbourg, 04.06.2007 – Following several months of additional investigation, Dick Marty (Switzerland, ALDE), rapporteur of the Council of Europe Parliamentary Assembly (PACE), is due to present his second report on “Alleged secret detentions and illegal inter-state transfers involving Council of Europe member states” to the Assembly’s Committee on Legal Affairs and Human Rights in Paris on Friday 8 June 2007.

The meeting is closed to the press, but if the report is approved by the committee, it will be made public on this occasion.

Mr Marty will also give a press conference at 2 p.m.

Commenting on the draft, Mr Marty said: “My first report focused mainly on illegal inter-state transfers and extraordinary renditions.

This second report will focus mainly on the other part of my mandate – secret detentions.”

The report, if approved, is scheduled for debate by the 318-member Assembly, bringing together parliamentarians from all 47 Council of Europe member states, on Wednesday 27 June 2007, during its June plenary session in Strasbourg.
