CIA prisons in Poland 'illegal'

CIA prisons in Poland 'illegal' --Prosecutors representing terror suspect Adb al-Rahim al-Nashiri claim the man was tortured at the facility between 2002 to 2003. Al-Nashiri was subjected to waterboarding and mock executions with a power drill while he was naked and hooded, the prosecutors said. 30 May 2011 Secret prisons operated by the US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) on Polish territory violated international law and the Polish constitution according to legal experts, reported the daily Gazeta Wyborcza on Monday, citing sources close to an investigation. The CIA held terror suspects inside a military intelligence training base in Stare Kiejkuty, northeastern Poland, from 2002 to 2005, anonymous Polish intelligence officers have said. According to Wyborcza, Poland and the US agreed that the US would not reply to a Polish request for assistance in the case. This would prolong the investigation until the case could be suspended, the daily reported, citing a source in the prosecutor's office.
