United States: Boeing subsidiary faces charges over role in CIA renditions

On 30 May, a lawsuit was filed before the US District Court for the District of Northern California on behalf of three victims of the US-led rendition programme. The lawsuit was filed against Jeppesen, a subsidiary of Boeing, for its role in their renditions to Egypt, Morocco and Afghanistan between 2001 and 2004. In the complaint, it is argued that Jeppesen knowingly provided flight services to the CIA and has facilitated and profited from the forced disappearances, torture and other cruel and inhumane treatment of the victims. The charges are brought under the Alien Tort Claims Act of 1789.
