US Supreme Court Denies El-Masri Appeal on CIA Rendition | Germany | Deutsche Welle | 09.10.2007
The United States Supreme Court refused to review the case of a German man who alleges he was kidnapped, imprisoned and tortured by the CIA.

The US high court did not give an explanation for its decision on Tuesday, Oct. 9, to refuse the appeal of Khaled el-Masri, a Lebanese-born German. US administration officials had called on the court to reject the case on national security grounds, arguing a public trial would reveal state secrets.


"We are very disappointed," el-Masri's German lawyer Manfred Gnjidic said of the decision, according to the Associated Press. "This is going to completely shake all confidence in the American justice system."
