EXTRAORDINARY RENDITION
EDM #901
Tabled 31 January 2017
2016-17 Session
That this House recognises that between 2001 and 2005, at least 24 aircraft with known links to the US Central Intelligence Agency stopped on Scottish soil, a total of 107 times enroute or returning from missions that involved activities widely believed to include kidnapping, torture and extraordinary rendition; notes that these aircraft refuelled at Scottish airports enroute to or from known destinations for the purpose of extraordinary rendition and torture; further notes that Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Inverness, Glasgow, Prestwick and Wick John O'Groats airports were all used in the rendition of terrorist suspects; further recognises that responsibility for authorising such flights rests with the Government and that transfers to torture are designed and intended to deprive the individual of their most basic human rights; acknowledges that the use of Scottish airports to service aircraft undertaking extraordinary rendition is wholly unacceptable and that the people of Scotland wish no part in facilitating or enabling extraordinary rendition flights that ultimately subject fellow human beings to the cruellest abuse imaginable; and concludes that the Government must never again authorise in secret the use of Scottish airports to facilitate the breach of any individual's inalienable human rights.
