Kwaśniewski: No CIA Prisons in Poland

In a recent interview, Poland's former president Aleksander Kwaśniewski denied that there were any secret CIA prisons in Poland under his presidency. He admitted, however, that "there was intelligence cooperation with the United States as part of joint activities against international terrorism."

In a behind-closed-doors investigation, Polish prosecutors are trying to find out if the Polish authorities consented to the alleged setting up of secret CIA prisons in Poland. Media reports suggest that the investigation may include the questioning of top officials including the ex-president, who allegedly agreed to such prisons being set up in Poland. In these prisons, individuals suspected of terrorism were allegedly questioned with the use of torture. According to the media, prosecutors also want to question ex-prime minister Leszek Miller and the former head of the Military Information Services, Gen. Marek Dukaczewski.

Speculation about the alleged existence of secret CIA prisons in Poland has circulated since 2005 when the Human Rights Watch organization published a report alleging that the CIA had secret bases in countries including Poland and Romania where it supposedly held Al-Qaeda members.
