Torture flight investigators ‘must access’ Senate report
Monday 26th May 2014
POLICE investigating the use of Scottish airports for CIA torture flights“must have access” to a new US Senate intelligence report on the spy agency’s secret rendition programme, justice campaigners warned yesterday.
Legal charity Reprieve has demanded that Scotland’s First Minister Alex Salmond and chief legal officer Lord Advocate Frank Mulholland take steps to ensure the US report is provided to Police Scotland without delay.
Reprieve’s legal director Kat Craig said: “Without access to the Senate committee’s report, it is hard to see how we will be able to be sure that Police Scotland’s investigation will have left no stone unturned.”
The Lord Advocate last year asked police to investigate the use of Scottish airports by the CIA for its programme of “renditions” — in which terror suspects are kidnapped and flown to another country in order to torturethem with impunity.
Ms Craig said police must “get to the bottom of whether Scotland was involved — knowingly or otherwise — in the serious human rights abuses of the rendition programme.”
