Former president admits: CIA had prison in Poland

Wednesday, December 10, 2014, 16:10

Polish President Aleksander Kwasniewski former has confirmed what about singing for years: the CIA had a secret prison in Poland, where in the years after the attacks of September 11, 2001 terror suspects were interrogated.

Kwasniewski did not give details in an interview with a Polish radio station. He underlined that the Polish authorities have never authorized the torture of suspects or the use of controversial interrogation techniques.

Obviously, the CIA did not wait for Polish government permission to start torturing.

Until now, Poland had always denied that the CIA had a prison in the country, despite reports by former employees of US intelligence services and human rights organizations.

Eight suspects

The CIA is said to have interrogated in any case from December 2002 until the fall of 2003 al-Qaida suspects in Poland. Human rights groups cite a number of eight suspects. …

In 2008, the Polish government commissioned a study about the reports about the existence of a CIA prison. In the report that appeared yesterday on the interrogation practices of the CIA, Poland is not specifically mentioned. But the researchers hope they can still find useful information in it.

THE world responded with a mixture of anger and indignation today to the release of the US Senate report on CIA torture of terror suspects. The United Nations and a range of human rights groups called for the prosecution of US officials involved in the illegal and brutal interrogations: here.
