CIA abuse claim is in­ves­ti­gated

Los Angeles Times - - The World -

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.
