UN report – Romania involved in secret detentions

UN experts have authored a report on secret detentions, a practice ‘reinvigorated’ by the war on terrorism, and have included Romania among the European states that accepted it, a UN communiqué published on the organization’s website informs. The countries mentioned in the study are: United States, Russia, China, India, Iran, Pakistan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Algeria, Egypt, Iraq, Israel, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Yemen and Romania. In June 2007, rapporteur Dick Marty stated in a report for the Council of Europe that he had ‘sufficient evidence to state that secret prisons run by the CIA have existed in Europe from 2003 to 2005, particularly in Poland and Romania.’

His allegations were based on statements from over 30 former or current members of intelligence services in the United States and Europe. According to Marty, the detention center located in Romania was in use from 2003 to mid-2005. The Romanian authorities have vehemently and repeatedly rejected this information.
