Amnesty International Accuses European Governments of Complicity in ‘Torture Flights’ 3

Amnesty International has accused European governments, including Ireland and the UK, of complicity and inaction over US-led rendition and secret detention, as it published a new report on European renditions and a ‘Six-point Plan’ for their prevention.

Amnesty International’s report, ‘State of denial: Europe’s role in rendition and secret detention’, published yesterday, shed further light on the extent of Europe’s role in the US-led rendition and secret detention programmes. It also exposes the continuing failure of European states, including Ireland, to admit or investigate violations carried out by their nationals or on their territory.

    A lengthy NY Times article entitled "Inside a 9/11 Mastermind's Interrogation" (June 22, 2008) discusses the role of prisons in Poland in these interrogations (one official is quoted characterizing Poland as the "51st State" due the degree of cooperation Poland showed)

    I wonder if the victims or human rights activists can pursue legal cases against these European states? After all, their level of complicity amounts to participation in and infliction of torture.
