The COE Parliamentary Assembly has also adopted Recommendation 1754 (2006) on alleged secret detentions and unlawful inter-state transfers of detainees involving Council of Europe member states, and Recommendation 1801 (2007) on Secret detentions and illegal transfers of detainees involving Council of Europe member states: second report. The Committee on legal affairs and human rights is currently preparing a follow-up report to the “Marty reports” on secret detentions: “Abuse of state secrecy and national security: obstacles to parliamentary and judicial scrutiny of human rights violations”.
