ICJ submission to the Human Rights Council Universal Periodic Review of Poland

The ICJ made written submissions to the Human Rights Council on the Universal Periodic Review of Poland, as part of the first round of Universal Periodic Review.

This submission focused on an issue which should be central to the Council’s review of human rights in Poland: the existence of at least one CIA-run secret detention centre in Poland, and of renditions of suspects to and from this centre, between 2003 and 2005. In addition, the ICJ drew the attention of the Council to recent difficulties in the judicial appointments process in Poland, which raise concerns regarding judicial independence.
