Council of Europe awaits response from 5 nations

Belgium, Bosnia-Hercegovina, Italy, San Marino and Georgia have failed to provide information to the Council of Europe by the deadline of Tuesday 21st February on allegations of covert CIA prison transport flights which are alleged to have occurred as a means of transporting terror suspects for 'interrogation'. Secretary-General Terry Davis has reminded all five countries that: "their failure to reply is a clear breach of the Convention [*], which underpins the defence of human rights across the continent."

As our police forces, and our Home Secretary, are wont to remind us - if you have nothing to hide you have nothing to fear. So, get on with it you five countries!

[*] European Convention on Human Rights.
