CIA abuse claim is investigated
A Polish prosecutor says his office has opened an investigation into whether a Saudi man accused in the 2000 bombing of the U.S. warship Cole was mistreated in a prison that the CIA allegedly ran in Poland.
Prosecutor Jerzy Mierzewski said events surrounding Abd Rahim Nashiri’s detention will be handled as part of an ongoing investigation into Poland’s involvement in the now-shuttered U.S. system of secret prisons around the globe. No charges have yet been filed.
Mierzewski said Polish prosecutors would decide “one by one” on Nashiri’s requests for many witnesses to be questioned.
