February 11, 2014 - Poland’s criminal investigation into secret CIA prisons located on its territory has been in progress since 2008. Now run from the Prosecutor’s Office in Krakow, the process has recently been extended, once again, to February 2014.
In the meantime, Palestinian Abu Zubaydah, and Saudi Arabian national Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri, are expecting a ruling from the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) over allegations that Polish authorities were complicit in multiple violations of their human rights while they were detained in Stare Kiejkuty.
Both men are still considered high-value detainees and are currently held under ultra-secure conditions in a Guantanamo Bay Detention Camp, making communication with the applicants, legal or otherwise, almost impossible.
In October 2013, a third man held at the CIA black site in Poland, Yemeni national Walid Mohammed Bin Attash, was granted ‘injured person’ status by the Polish authorities, as have the two other alleged terrorists who have brought their cases to Strasbourg under the European Convention on Human Rights. read more>>>>
