Lithuania reopens CIA 'black site' investigation

Human rights activists say a US Senate report confirmed suspicions that a Guantanamo detainee was imprisoned at a secret CIA jail in Lithuania in 2005-2006Lithuanian prosecutors said Thursday they have reopened an investigation into allegations that the Baltic nation hosted a secret US interrogation centre for Al-Qaeda suspects a decade ago. Prosecutors restarted a probe into former secret service chiefs alleged to have hushed up the existence of a US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) so-called “black site”, Rita Stundiene, a spokeswoman for the prosecutors, told AFP. The investigation was merged with an ongoing separate probe into suspicions that Saudi national Mustafa al-Hawsawi was imprisoned at a secret CIA jail in Lithuania in 2005-2006. “The prosecutor renewed a previously terminated probe and merged it with the ongoing pre-trial investigation,” Stundiene said.
