The New York Times: Poland Appeals European Court of Human Rights Ruling on C.I.A.

(The New York Times) – The Polish government has appealed a ruling by the European Court of Human Rights that the country violated the rights of two terrorism suspects by transferring them to a so-called “black site” in northeast Poland run by the Central Intelligence Agency, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said on Friday.

The court ruled in July that the two men had suffered “torture and inhuman or degrading treatment” while they were held at the site. It was the first such ruling involving a European country that had participated in the C.I.A.’s “extraordinary rendition” program, in which terrorism suspects were interrogated secretly at facilities outside the United States and beyond the reach of American constitutional protections.
