MOSCOW (Sputnik) — In a civil action suit brought forward by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), District of Columbia Judge James Boasberg ruled Wednesday in the intelligence agency's favor, dismissing the human rights group's claim.
"To be sure, Plaintiff – and the public – may well ultimately gain access to the document it seeks. But it is not for the Court to expedite that process," Boasberg concluded.
The agency, aided by various countries particularly in Europe, abducted and transferred suspects to secret detention facilities where they were interrogated using various methods, the report states.
Although the Senate report has sparked wide international reproach, the US Justice Department has said that it would not launch investigations into CIA torture claims.
In a similar decision, the judge ruled in late March to keep another secret CIA torture document known as the Panetta Review exempt from the Freedom of Information Act.
