A European investigator looking into allegations of secret, CIA-run prisons in Europe said today that "a great deal" of evidence pointed towards the existence of a US system of "outsourcing" torture.
Swiss senator Dick Marty said it was also highly likely European governments knew what the US had been doing,[tony lying? no!] and that more than 100 prisoners may have been involved in recent years.
"It has been proved that individuals have been abducted, deprived of their liberty and all rights and transported to different destinations in Europe, to be handed over to countries in which they have suffered degrading treatment and torture," he told the council's assembly in Strasbourg.
