EU parliament condemned complicity with CIA secret prisons

On February 14, 2007, the European Parliament voted 382-256 to approve a report condemning member states for cooperating with the CIA in operating illegal secret prisons and extraordinary rendition flights in Europe. The report condemned the European countries who allowed the CIA to forcibly remove terror suspects from within their borders, including the UK, Germany and Italy, and criticized those nations and others for a "reluctance to cooperate" with investigations into the CIA's activities in Europe.
