VILNIUS, Lithuania — European Parliament officials say they are dismayed by a lack of coherence in two probes by Lithuanian authorities into alleged CIA prisons on its territory.
European lawmaker Helene Flautre of France said Friday that separate investigations by Lithuania lawmakers and prosecutors are contradictory and raise serious questions.
An investigation by Lithuanian lawmakers in 2009 found that two facilities had been set up in the Baltic state but there was no evidence prisoners were held there.
Prosecutors concluded that the sites held no prisoners.
Flautre is one of six European lawmakers on a three-day fact-finding mission to ascertain whether a new probe into the alleged prisons should be launched. — AP
