Poland’s government has, for a second time in 12 months, declined a request from the European Court of Human Rights to provide information about the alleged existence of secret CIA jails on its soil.
The Strasbourg-based court is trying to find out how closely Poland cooperated with the clandestine part of U.S. operations against Islamist militancy.
Poland is the only country with a domestic criminal investigation running into allegations it hosted a CIA “black site”. If it is proven that Polish officials agreed to the jail, that would be a crime under Polish and international law.
