UN Expert: Search US planes landing at Shannon

NOWAK ADDS HIS VOICE TO A GROWING LIST

At the international law seminar in Dublin today ,UN Expert on torture Manfred Nowak has called on the irish government to search all planes landing at shannon airport.

Speaking along with Mona Rishmawi, juridical adviser to the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Mr Nowak explained, “I think there is so much evidence that flights have also been used for rendition purposes so I would say that for the future there should be preventive measures to search these planes to make sure that they are not used for rendition purposes.”

A survey in March by Amnesty International’s Irish Section found three out of four respondents in Ireland share the organisation’s concerns about extraordinary rendition flights.
