EU rendition report: Key excerpts
EU lawmakers have adopted a report that is highly critical of member states which turned a blind eye to secret CIA operations to seize terror suspects on their territory.

Here are excerpts of key sections of the report:

The European Parliament:

Denounces the lack of co-operation of many member states and of the Council of the European Union with the investigation;

Regrets that European countries have been relinquishing control over their airspace and airports by turning a blind eye or admitting flights operated by the CIA which, on some occasions, were being used for illegal transportation of detainees;

Calls for the closure of [the US military detention mission in] Guantanamo and for European countries immediately to seek the return of their citizens and residents who are being held illegally by the US authorities;

Considers that all European countries should initiate independent investigations into all stopovers by civilian aircraft [hired by] the CIA;

Urges that a ban or system of inspections be introduced for all CIA-operated aircraft known to have been involved in extraordinary rendition.
