Europe's human rights chief urged Lithuania, Poland and Romania on Monday to investigate the roles their governments allegedly played in the CIA's program of "secret detention and torture" of terrorism suspects.
Europe's human rights chief launched a blistering attack Thursday on European governments' counterterrorism actions, accusing them of helping the United States commit "countless" crimes in the past 10 years.
Mr. Hammarberg urged European governments to allow judicial scrutiny of abuses arising from the rendition operations and to stop shielding those who collaborated with U.S. intelligence agencies in organizing the operations.
The 10-year anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks is an occasion to analyze whether the official responses have been proper and effective, said Thomas Hammarberg, the Council of Europe's rights commissioner.
