What is 'Extraordinary Rendition'?

Written by

Rendition and extraordinary rendition are not terms defined by law. They describe the process by which a detainee is transferred from one state to another, outside normal legal processes (i.e. extradition, deportation, etc).  In many cases these detainees are transferred to secret detention or to a third country for the purposes of interrogation, often in circumstances where they face a real risk of torture.
