Renewed claims against Poland and Romania maintain they colluded with illegal US intelligence agency transfers and detention of terrorism suspects. Council of Europe human rights investigator Dick Marty shared his findings in Strasbourg, as the countries continued to deny the allegations.
“These centres were not managed by the Polish and Romanian services. They were managed directly by the American services. The local services stuck to securing the perimeter, helping air transport – and masking operations.”
Marty said his new information comes from sources insisting on anonymity, working with the US secret services. He says separate air traffic records corroborate his information. “There was also a series of secret agreements within NATO. This platform served the CIA in Europe, allowing it to move around easily without any interference.”
NATO spokesperson Carmen Romero said there was never any accord such as Marty described. The Swiss senator said that the Swiss and Italian authorities apparently chose to preserve relations with their powerful US ally at any price, concealing unpleasant truths.
