WARSAW (AP) — A Polish prosecutor on Wednesday said his office has opened an investigation into whether a Saudi man accused in the 2000 bombing of the USS Cole was mistreated in a prison that the CIA allegedly ran in Poland.

Prosecutor Jerzy Mierzewski told the Associated Press on Wednesday that events surrounding Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri’s detention will be handled as part of an ongoing investigation into Poland’s involvement in the now-shuttered U.S. system of secret prisons around the globe. No charges have been filed yet.

Mr. Mierzewski said Polish prosecutors will decide “one by one” on Mr. al-Nashiri’s requests for many witnesses to be questioned.

Terror detainees suh as Mr. al-Nashiri were exposed to harsh interrogation methods that critics have called torture.
