NETHERLANDS: COURT BLOCKS EXTRADITION TO U.S. OVER TORTURE CONCERNS

January 20, 2015: a Dutch court blocked the extradition of a man accused of having fought against U.S. troops in Afghanistan, saying it could not be ruled out that the CIA had been involved in his torture after his arrest in Pakistan.
Dutch court documents showed the suspect, a Dutch-Pakistani dual citizen named Sabir Khan, was tortured after his arrest by Pakistan's ISI security service.
He faces charges in New York of conspiracy to commit murder and of supporting Al-Qaeda.
The court said the Netherlands could not transfer him because Dutch and international law prohibits the extradition of torture victims to countries that played a role in abuse.
Washington denied in a letter sent to Dutch officials in October in that U.S. authorities were involved in his arrest, but the Dutch court said it was not convinced the CIA had not been involved in his detention.
"This letter does not rule out the possible involvement of the CIA," the court in The Hague said in a statement. "Since it cannot be ruled out that it was the CIA which requested the arrest, the judge again forbids" his extradition.
A U.S. Senate report said in December the CIA misled the White House and public about its torture of detainees after the Sept. 11 attacks in 2001 and acted more brutally and pervasively than it acknowledged in torturing Al-Qaeda and other captives in secret facilities worldwide between 2002 and 2006.
