Practice Relating to Rule 98. Enforced Disappearance
In 2008, in a written response to a question on human rights issues, Ireland’s Minister for Foreign Affairs stated:
[T]he Government is completely opposed to the practice of the extraordinary rendition of prisoners.
The Committee [Cabinet Committee on Aspects of International Human Rights] has agreed that early contact should be made with the new US Administration to seek a clear statement of intent that extraordinary rendition would cease and would not resume during the new President’s term of office. … [W]hat we are looking for is a clear overall policy statement which would commit the new Administration to end the practice of extraordinary rendition wherever it may be occurring.
