Polish PM, US president discuss US senate report on CIA prisons

The US senate report on CIA prisons was one of the topics brought up by US president Barack Obama during a telephone conversation with Polish PM Ewa Kopacz prior to Tuesday’s release of the report’s summary, the Polish government press office has said.

Obama expressed hope that the publication will have no negative effects on US-Polish relations.

The 6700-page report declassified by the senate intelligence committee condemned the CIA for inflicting suffering beyond its limits on detainees in secret prisons. The Polish government has been accused of having provided a “black site” prison for use by CIA interrogators.
