Europe must come clean over CIA secret detentions - de Brún MEP

18 March, 2008


Following an Amnesty International report which provides new disturbing evidence suggesting CIA abuses in Europe, Sinn Féin MEP Bairbre de Brún has called for a complete stop to this process and a detailed list of all US rendition flights through Europe.

Ms de Brún said:

"The shocking scenes and violations of human rights documented in reports by human rights bodies, by the Council of Europe, and by the European Parliament are once again under the spotlight and I urge a stop to this immediately.

"This week's Amnesty International report into the secret rendition and detention programme carried out by the CIA in Europe must be fully investigated and these practices must be stopped.

"The report is gruesome reading and I would like to back the Amnesty call for EU governments to get clarification from the US on these issues and I also call for detailed information from the US on all alleged CIA rendition flights that went through Europe.

"This is a human rights issue of paramount importance." Críoch
