(European Parliament Member Cem Oezdemir)
Recently, I wrote about an important interim report that was issued by a Temporary Committee of the European Parliament investigating the complicity of European governments in illegally collaborating and cooperating with the CIA on secret enemy combatant detention centers and clandestine rendition-related flight traffic.
Cem Oezdemir, who is a Member of the European Parliament from Germany and a former Memer of the German Bundestag, is Vice President of the European Parliament’s Temporary Committee on the Alleged Use of European Countries by the CIA for the Secret Transport and Illegal Detention of Prisoners.
When last I wrote about this report, only a short roster of talking points was available in English. The Interim Report is now fully translated and is available in English here.
Today, I am hosting Cem Oezdemir at the New America Foundation in Washington, D.C. to discuss this report. The meeting starts at 1 p.m. and will end at 2:15 p.m. for those nearby who want to stop in. Quite a lot of media are coming.
