Alleged secret CIA detention centres – René van der Linden calls for full co-operation with PACE enquiry

Speaking at today’s session of the Council of Europe’s executive body, the Committee of Ministers, the President of the 46-nation Organisation’s Parliamentary Assembly (PACE) called on all member governments, along with the European Commission, to co-operate fully with the recently designated Assembly rapporteur in charge of examining alleged secret CIA detention centres. “This issue goes to the very heart of the Council of Europe’s human rights mandate,” he said.
