Bulgaria: Romania and Lithuania Helped CIA to Torture Prisoners

European judges have ruled that our northern neighbor- Romania and Lithuania have violated the rights of two suspected terrorists from "Al Qaeda" and helped the CIA to abuse them, reports the BBC (BBC).

The United States caught Abu Zubaydah and Abd al-Rahim al-Nashari after the New York attacks of September 11, 2001, and are now in jail at Guantanamo Bay.

CIA operates in a number of secret prisons, including those in Lithuania and Romania.

The European Court of Human Rights has stated that both sides have supported the US torture of the two suspects.


The existence of so-called "black spots" for interrogation by the CIA was kept secret for many years after 11th of September.

AbZubaydahda, a Palestinian born in Saudi Arabia, is believed to have been Al Qaeda's chief recruiter in the 1990s. Later, he became a key figure in the terrorist organization acting as a liaison between Osama bin Laden and al-Qaeda cells.

Abd al-Rahim al-Nasriy who was born in Saudi Arabian is in charge of al-Qaeda operations in the Persian Gulf, according to US intelligence.
