VILNIUS, Lithuania - Lithuanian prosecutors have opened a new investigation into allegations that a Saudi citizen, who is suspected of involvement in the September 11 terrorist attacks, was held at a secret CIA detention site in the Baltic country.
The prosecutors' decision Thursday followed a Jan. 29 Vilnius court ruling, overturning a previous decision not to investigate the possible illegal transportation of people across the state border. Investigators closed a similar case in 2011, citing lack of evidence.
Human rights watchdog Redress said it was highly likely that suspect Mustafa al-Hawsawi was secretly held in Lithuania sometime between March 2004 and September 2006. He is currently detained in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.
