US Senate report on CIA could help Poland's probe

Posted:

 Polish Prime Minister Ewa Kopacz says the U.S. Senate's report on CIA practices could help conclude a probe into whether Poland hosted a secret CIA detention site.

   A summary of the report released Tuesday condemned the CIA for inflicting suffering on detainees in secret prisons. It doesn't identify the host countries.

   Since 2008, Poland has been investigating allegations it hosted a secret prison from 2002-2003.

   The spokesman for prosecutors in the probe, Piotr Kosmaty, said Tuesday they will want to see the report as they seek evidence.

   Kopacz says that prosecutors will assess the value of the report for their investigation, which she wants to be concluded quickly.

   President Barack Obama called Kopacz on Monday and expressed hope that the publication will have no negative effects on bilateral ties.
