From British daily The Morning Star:
MPs demand CIA prison probe
Thursday 22 October 2009
Parliament’s national security and defence committee said it wanted the full 141-member assembly to approve the probe next week.
The call for an investigation was made a day after President Dalia Grybauskaite revealed she had “indirect suspicions” about a secret CIA prison in Lithuania.
And defence committee chairman Arvydas Anusauskas said that parliament wanted to question “certain persons” about the existence of a possible CIA prison.
Former president Valdas Adamkus and ex-PM Algirdas Brazauskas, in office at the time the centre was supposedly built, rejected the report.
But Ms Grybauskaite said the allegations of a CIA prison should be taken seriously. “I have indirect suspicions – and not only me, but the entire international community,” she said.
“If there was such a thing, Lithuania should come clean, take responsibility and promise that it will never happen again.”
She stressed that both Lithuania and the United States “must provide answers to these questions.”
In a 2007 probe conducted on behalf of the Council of Europe, Swiss Senator Dick Marty accused 14 European governments of permitting the CIA to run detention camps or conduct “rendition” flights through their countries between 2002 and 2005.
