Europe looks to next moves in CIA prison scandal

Deutschewelle reports that “A Swiss newspaper” has reported proof, from Egyptian sources, of CIA-run prisons within Europe. The Council of Europe “whose chief mission is to monitor compliance to the European conventions on human rights and prohibiting torture … has already appointed its own investigator, Dick Marty of Switzerland, who is to present his report at the end of January.” If proof is found, the European Union “will have the duty to decide on how to handle the serious breach in EU law.”
