Europe’s top human rights court ruled Thursday that Poland allowed the CIA to detain two terrorism suspects at a secret prison on its territory where they were exposed to “torture and inhuman or degrading treatment.”
In a 400-page ruling, the European Court of Human Rights said Poland violated the European Convention on Human Rights and failed to properly investigate what had happened to Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri, a Saudi national, and Abu Zubaydah, a Palestinian born in Saudi Arabia, while they were in CIA custody.
The CIA brought a number of suspected al-Qaeda members to the prison, including Zubaydah, Nashiri and Khalid Sheik Mohammed, the self-admitted mastermind of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. While imprisoned on a military base in northern Poland, a pair of CIA contractors waterboarded Mohammed 183 times. A CIA operative also subjected Nashiri to a mock execution and put a drill to the head of the blindfolded man, according to several former CIA officials and a report by the agency’s inspector general.
