European court rejects Polish appeal in CIA jail case

A ruling by the European Court of Human Rights that Poland hosted a secret CIA jail on its soil became final on Tuesday after the court in Strasbourg rejected a request for an appeal submitted by the Polish government.

The decision, which was posted on the court’s website, means that Poland must now pay compensation to two men held in the CIA jail, and must quickly bring to a conclusion a criminal investigation into whether Polish officials were guilty of allowing the jail to operate.
