CIA’s use of torture: MEPs to ask for updates on investigations
Has the Council acknowledged EU member states' involvement in the CIA’s secret detention and extraordinary rendition programme? And would such involvement not constitute a breach of EU law? These are among the questions that MEPs will put to the Council and Commission in a debate on Tuesday. This debate, on the follow up to Parliament’s February 2015 resolution on the US Senate report on the use of torture by the CIA, will be wrapped up in a resolution to be voted on Wednesday.
The resolution and oral questions to Council and Commission follow up Parliament's resolution of 11 February 2015. The debate was postponed from the May plenary session. Parliament has repeatedly called for full investigations into the involvement of EU member states in the CIA programme.
Procedure: Oral questions to Council and Commission followed by resolution
00039/2016 - Question for oral answer to the Commission
Debate: Tuesday, 7 June
Vote: Wednesday, 8 June
