CIA tortured terror suspects in Lithuanian secret prison

Posted by Info on 25/08/2009

RT Today: It’s claimed Lithuania, a former Soviet republic on the Baltic Sea, provided the CIA with facilities where as many as eight terror suspects were held, according to information given to ABC News by unnamed CIA sources.

According to ABC News, information received from some CIA sources alleges a so-called “black site prison” existed on the outskirts of Vilnius for more than a year, until 2005.

This isn’t the first time Lithuania has been implicated in the US’s extraordinary anti-terror program. At a Council of Europe debate in 2005, it was named along with Poland and Romania, as the host of an illegal prison, but managed to escape direct accusation.
