23 Americans Convicted Of Abducting Egyptian Terror Suspect

Posted by Info on 30/04/2010

An Italian court has convicted 23 Americans of abducting an Egyptian terror suspect under the CIA’s so-called “extraordinary rendition” programme.
The man who was abducted was taken to Egypt, where he was allegedly tortured. Americans have been found guilty and given sentences of five to eight years to serve in prison.

The convicted men ranged from US diplomats to members of the military and included the former CIA station chief in Milan, Robert Seldon Lady, who received the longest sentence of eight years.

“This has been an ongoing case, so we will have to see if Interpol red notices go out and which countries will cooperate with authorities to take these people into custody.”

Amnesty International has said that the US should not need a foreign court to distinguish what is right from what is wrong.
