Polish PM urges “discretion” around CIA prisons probe
Poland’s Prime Minister Donald Tusk on Thursday appealed for more “discretion” around the country’s investigation into alleged CIA prisons for al Qaeda suspects on Polish soil, after media revelations about the probe.
Polish media said on Tuesday prosecutors had charged a former head of Poland’s intelligence service with helping set up secret CIA detention centers at the height of the U.S. “war on terror” in the early 2000s.
“I did not came up with those charges and, if I were in the prosecutors’ shoes, I would not come up with such charges. But maybe I don’t have enough information,” Tusk told a news conference.
He added those investigating the case “must rise to the highest standards of concern for state interest” and show the “utmost discretion”.
