Reprieve: Abu Zubaydah was held in secret detention in Lithuania

In a letter to the President and Prosecutor General of Lithuania,  the British human rights charity Reprieve has requested a full and thorough investigation into allegations that Lithuanian officials were complicit in the secret detention of ‘high value detainee’ Abu Zubaydah between 2004 and 2006.

According to Lithuania’s Parliamentary Committee on National Security and Defence, officials from Lithuania’s state security department assisted in the construction of a CIA prison in Lithuania. Reprieve has now learned “from a highly reliable source” that one such prisoner was Abu Zubaydah. The organisation is certain that at some point between his arrival in Morocco in 2004 and his arrival in Guantánamo in 2006, Mr Zubaydah was detained in Lithuania.
