The European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg, France ruled Thursday that Poland violated the European human rights convention by allowing the CIA to render two alleged terrorists on its territory.

The court held that Poland had co-operated with the secret illegal transfers in 2002-2003, allowing two alleged members of al-Qaeda, a Saudi Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri and a Palestinian Abu Zubaydah, to be interrogated at a secret “black site” prison on Polish soil.
