Democracy Now: Amnesty Urges Lithuania to Re-Open Rendition Probe


Amnesty International is claiming to have uncovered new evidence of Lithuania’s involvement in the George W. Bush administration’s use of rendition flights and secret CIA prisons. The group says investigators have discovered a previously undisclosed rendition flight pointing to the detention of al-Qaeda operative, Abu Zubaydah, at one of the two known CIA prisons on Lithuanian soil. Amnesty researcher Julia Hall said Lithuanian investigators should re-open a probe.
Julia Hall: “This is a flight that does not appear in any parliamentary inquiry report. We have never heard any explanation from the prosecutor general about this flight. And so it begs the question: If Crofton Black a professional investigator from Reprieve and Amnesty International with it’s staff of professionals who have been able to verify this flight, can do it, why couldn’t the prosecutor general uncover this flight with its resources and its own professional staff.”
