Welcome to The APPG on Extraordinary Rendition

Andrew Tyrie MPAndrew Tyrie MP

 

The All Party Parliamentary Group on Extraordinary Rendition was established by Andrew Tyrie in December 2005. It is a cross party grouping of MPs and Peers from the British parliament who have come together to examine extraordinary rendition and related issues.

 

The questions asked by... the All-Party Parliamentary Group are precisely the sort of parliamentary
interrogation and questioning that is wholly appropriate.


Former Foreign Secretary David Miliband MP, 21 February 2008

The European Court of Human Rights ruled that Poland violated the European Convention on Human Rights by allowing the establishment of a secret 'black site' at Stare Kiejkuty, which operated between 2002 and 2005, where the CIA illegally detained and tortured terrorist suspects.  Two current Guantanamo detainees, Abu Zubaydah and Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri, were transferred from Thailand to Poland by the CIA and tortured at the black site between 2002 and 2003.  

This is the first case reviewed by the ECHR that involved accusations that a European country was complicit in the CIA rendition programme.  More can be read here and here.  The Court's press release can be read here.  The judgments can be read here and here.
