EU: Parliamentary Committee adopts final report on secret detentions and renditions

On 23 January, the European Parliament’s Temporary Committee adopted its final report on the alleged transportation and illegal detention of terrorist suspects by the CIA in Europe. The report concluded that temporary secret detention facilities might have been located at US military bases in Europe. It also called on the Committee on Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs to follow up and, if necessary, recommend sanctions under EU Treaty Articles 6 and 7 against those Member States found to be in breach of the fundamental principles and values of the EU. The Parliament will vote on the report in February.
