Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Well, even if not, it certainly puts agents of the government involved in renditions (whether they initiated it or just co-operated) under legal threat. And also the governments would have to pay compensation for recent sins.

Not to mention that it opens up possibilities of further investigations. You can see why some with guilty consciences would not want to sign it. (Thinking particularly of Tony Blair here, since I'm from there, but presumably similar issues apply in other countries.)
