European states have been implicated in the US-led rendition and secret detention programme, in which people have been unlawfully detained and transferred from one country to another outside of any judicial process. Some have been transferred from US custody to countries where torture and ill-treatment is known to accompany interrogation; others have been transferred into US custody and subsequently held in detention centres in Afghanistan and Cuba. European states must act now to; condemn; investigate; bring to justice; ensure accountability of intelligence agencies; prevent secret detention and renditions; and provide reparations for victims.
