CIA officials associated with the brutal methods of interrogation, probably by the end of life won’t be able to leave the US because they could face criminal charges abroad due to their inhumane acts, reports Bloomberg.

“Those who were involved in the torture, especially those whose names are known, should never again travel outside the US – thinks Beth van Schaack, a professor of international criminal law and human rights at Stanford University.

She believes that there is a danger of lawsuits in front of the foreign courts because of “the principles of extended jurisdiction”.

Victims of CIA torture have so far filed six lawsuits, two of which to the European Court of Human Rights. Bloomberg reminded of the first case that came before the International Court in Strasbourg, a German of Lebanese origin Khaled el-Masri, who was detained in Macedonia, then transferred to Afghanistan for interrogation.

Strasbourg Court estimated that Macedonia violated the European Convention on Human Rights by depriving El-Masri of his rights to liberty and privacy, as well as refusing to properly investigate his claims.

In the El-Masri case, the court in Germany, as well as the court in the US, rejected the accusations against the CIA, but in May 2012, the International Court of Human Rights reviewed the case and ordered 60,000 euros to be paid to El-Masri.

US Senate report revealed that the CIA didn’t have basis to detain El-Masri, who was arrested in Macedonia after being mistaken for a terrorist with a similar name. The German of Lebanese origin was later handed over to US agents, who four months beaten and drugged him in a detention center in Afghanistan.

Macedonia has agreed to pay damages for human rights breach.
