Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
According to the story, France introduced the convention in the UN General Assembly last year. Looking at the investigation carried out by the COuncil of Europe and the European Parliament, it is clear that France was the only country whose territory and airspace was avoided by the CIA in its secret flights/prisons and rendition operations. The omission was significant, and provides some context for this.

I want to scream with shame and rage. What is the Council of Europe saying about this?
