Dutch Court Prevents Man’s Extradition To U.S. Over Torture Concerns

According to Reuters, a Dutch court on Tuesday blocked the extradition of a man accused of having fought against U.S. troops in Afghanistan.  They said it could not be ruled out that the CIA had been involved in his torture after his arrest in Pakistan.

Dutch court documents showed the suspect, a Dutch-Pakistani dual citizen named Sabir Khan, was tortured after his arrest by Pakistan’s ISI security service.

The man faces charges in New York of a conspiracy to commit murder and of supporting al Qaeda.
