Europeans in U.S. To Probe CIA Prisons

May 8, 2006 12:05pm

As the CIA reels from its management shake-up, a committee of the European Parliament arrives in Washington, D.C. today to continue its investigation of the CIA’s secret prisons in Europe.

Members of the committee are seeking to meet with former CIA employees who may know of the existence of the facilities.

The United States maintains that it "does not transport and has not transported detainees from one country to another for the purpose of interrogation using torture."

ABC News has reported the CIA established secret prisons in Romania and Poland in 2002-2003 to house about a dozen top al Qaeda leaders.

ABC News also reported the prisons were shut down earlier this year and the al Qaeda figures moved to a facility in North Africa.

The CIA has declined to comment on the reports.
