EU-rapport: Ikke en rapport når det kommer til stykket

Der er i disse dage megen snak om, at EU-parlamentet har vedtaget en "rapport" om CIA-flyvninger i Europa. Meget kan man kalde det, men en rapport er det ikke. Der er tale om et forslag til en resolution i EU-parlamentet samt fire anneks´er, hovedsageligt planer over de møder der er foretaget og lister over de personer der er eller ikke er blevet interviewet.

En overfladisk gennemlæsning fra min side viser ikke noget, der er værd at beskæftige sig med i længere tid (et eksempel: formodninger uden beviser om, at den fundamentalistisk islamiske egyptiske imam Abu Omar skulle være blevet torteret bliver på side 11 til bevist virkelighed). Hvis nogen skulle have overskud til selv at læse hele molevitten kan "rapporten" læses her.

Sektionerne fra resolutionen, der berører Danmark og vore skandinaviske naboer:

SWEDEN

96. Takes note of the position of the Swedish Government expressed in the letter
transmitted to the Temporary Committee by its Foreign Minister Carl Bildt; regrets that
no representative of the government was able to appear before the Temporary
Committee in order to hold an exchange of views on its position;


97. Condemns the fact that Sweden's expulsion in December 2001 of Mohammed El-Zari
and Ahmed Agiza, Egyptian nationals who were seeking asylum in Sweden, was based
solely on diplomatic assurances from the Egyptian Government, which did not provide
effective safeguards against torture; also acknowledges that the Swedish government
hindered them from exercising their rights in accordance with the European convention,
by not informing their lawyers until before they had arrived in Cairo; deplores the fact
that the Swedish authorities accepted an US offer to place at their disposal an aircraft
which benefited from special overflight authorisation in order to transport the two men
to Egypt;

98. Deplores the fact that the Swedish security police lost control over the enforcement of
the expulsion of Ahmed Agiza and Mohammed El-Zari to Egypt, outside the rule of
law, by remaining passive during the degrading treatment of the men by US agents at
Bromma airport;

99. Underlines that the decision of the expulsion was taken at the highest executive level,
from which no appeal was possible;

100. Fully endorses the UN Human Rights Committee's decision of 6 November 2006 in
which it found that Sweden had breached the absolute ban on torture; similarly endorses
a separate ruling by the UN Committee against Torture of 20 May 2005, which
concluded that Sweden had violated the UN Convention against Torture and other
Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment and stated that “procurement of
diplomatic assurances (from Egypt), which, moreover, provided no mechanism for their
enforcement, did not suffice to protect against this manifest risk";

101. Thanks the Swedish Chief Parliamentary Ombudsman, Mats Melin, for his testimony to
the Temporary Committee and applauds his investigation which concluded that the
Swedish security service and airport police “were remarkably submissive to the
American officials” and “lost control of the enforcement”, resulting in the ill-treatment
of Ahmed Agiza and Mohammed El-Zari, including physical abuse and other
humiliation, at the airport immediately before they were transported to Cairo;


DENMARK

129. Welcomes the cooperation received from the Danish authorities, while regretting that no
representative of the government considered it appropriate to appear before the
Temporary Committee;


Eneste person, komitteen inviterede var transportminister Flemming Hansen, og komitteen angiver selv grunden for det som at alt relevant materiale allerede har været fremlagt for Folketinget, og er blevet videresendt til komitteen.
