The European Union's justice commissioner warned Monday that any EU countries found to have operated secret CIA prisons could have their EU voting rights suspended.
His comment came as the Council of Europe - the continent's main human rights watchdog - investigates reports that the CIA set up secret jails in some European countries and transported terror suspects by covert flights. It has urged governments to fully provide information on the issue.
"I would be obliged to propose to the council serious consequences, including the suspension of voting rights," Franco Frattini said at a counterterrorism conference.
The EU leadership appear to know that claiming to support liberty and freedom and justice mean nothing it your actions prove this claim to be a lie. Either you do believe in these concepts, and embrace them. Or you don't, and build secret prison systems, and try to subvert constitutional protections, and try to imprison persons forever, at the whim of the administration.
I know where I stand,I just am not sure where my nation stands.
