Amnesty International report exposes European complicity in secret US rendition programme
Part 1: The fate of three Yemenis
28 April 2006
The following is the first of a two-part article.
The CIA’s illegal abduction and secret imprisonment of alleged terror suspects has come into sharper focus in recent months.
At the beginning of April, the human rights organization Amnesty International presented new details on the so-called practice of “rendition.”
The report also exposes the complicity of the European governments in the illegal activities of the CIA.
The Amnesty report titled “Below the radar: Secret flights to torture and ‘disappearance’” charts in minute detail the odyssey of three Yemeni citizens through four US secret prisons in Afghanistan, Djibouti, and probably Eastern Europe, and documents the hundreds of landings and take-offs at European airports by planes used by the CIA for illegal abductions.
