Human Rights Court finds Lithuania and Romania complicit in CIA torture

The European Court of Human Rights today found Lithuania and Romania knowingly hosted secret CIA detention centres. 

Neither country has to date publicly acknowledged letting the US hold prisoners on its soil.

The court found the countries were complicit in the ill-treatment suffered by the claimants, Abd al-Rahim Al-Nashiri and Abu Zubayda. What's more, both Lithuania and Romania had enabled the CIA to transfer the suspects to other prisons, exposing them to "a foreseeable serious risk of further ill-treatment".
