Extraordinary rendition is the forced transfer of individuals from one legal jurisdiction to another without recourse to legal proceedings such as extradition. It is carried out in by the CIA in secret, often combined with a kidnapping (for example, Mordechai Vanunu), and applied to cases where the purpose of the transfer is to subject the individual to torture in connection with the so-called War on Terror. The number of cases is not publicly acknowledged, but is estimated to be at least several hundred.
Extraordinary renditions and black sites in Europe
In January 2005, Swiss senator Dick Marty, representative at the Council of Europe in charge of the European investigations, concluded that 100 people had been kidnapped by the CIA in Europe — thus qualifying as ghost detainees — and then rendered to a country where they may have been tortured. Marty qualified the sequestration of Abu Omar in Milan in February 2003 as a "perfect example of extraordinary rendition."
The Guardian reported on 5 December 2005, that the government of the UK is "guilty of breaking international law if it knowingly allowed secret CIA "rendition" flights of terror suspects to land at UK airports, according to a report by American legal scholars."
At least far back as Allen Dulles, the US has carried out extraordinary rendition. An academic writing a Ph.D thesis was kidnapped by the CIA in USA and flown to Dominica where he was tortured and murdered.
