Judge: Cuban exile cannot be sent to Venezuela, Cuba
28 Sep 2005
the reason, given below is ironic,since the US has regularly sent terrorism suspects(including a canadian citizen) to countries like Syria and egypt to be tortured....

US is violatring its own laws. In any case its a bogus reason, s theres no indication he would be tortured..but his trial WOULD expose sinister US involvement in those countries.
But this ruling has one positive benefit: anyt country will be able to deny extradition to the US on the grounds the US may send the person to be tortured.
Judge: Cuban exile cannot be sent to Venezuela, Cuba

EL PASO, Texas (Reuters) - A U.S. judge has ruled that anti-Castro Cuban exile Luis Posada Carriles may not be deported to Cuba or Venezuela, which has requested his extradition for trial in a 1976 Cuban airliner bombing, a government spokeswoman said on Tuesday.

Immigration Judge William Abbott found in a written decision on Monday that Posada, a former CIA operative accused of masterminding the bombing in Venezuela which killed 73 people, faced the threat of torture in those countries and therefore could not be returned under the United Nations Convention Against Torture.

"The judge's decision did not rule out the removal of Mr. Posada to another country," U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokeswoman Leticia Zamarripa said.

"We are carefully reviewing the decision to determine how we will proceed in compliance with this ruling. In the meantime, Mr. Posada will remain in ICE custody," Zamarripa added
