EU tells Bush Crime Family to stop renditions for purposes of torture
BBC NEWS | World | Europe | No repeat over CIA flights urged:
Europe's human rights body has called for steps to ensure terror suspects never again 'disappear into thin air' from European soil. The Council of Europe accused states of colluding with the CIA on secret flights transferring prisoners to third countries where they could be tortured. It urged governments and parliaments in each state to hold their own inquiries.
'People should not be allowed to disappear into thin air, regardless of the crimes of which they accused,' said Council of Europe Secretary General Terry Davis.
'If we want to be safe we must be fair.
'The only effective measures against terrorism are those which stop more terrorists than they help to recruit.'"
