Thirteen CIA agents and contractors are currently under indictment by German prosecutors for the kidnapping and mistreatment of a German greengrocer, Khalid el-Masri. The CIA says it was an innocent case of mistaken identity and the United States refuses to extradite its personnel and contractors. Under pressure from the United States, German prosecutors are close to a decision to drop the case, and are facing strong criticism from around the world over failure to prosecute the case. Scott Horton is interviewed on this evening’s BBC World Today on the story. The interview will run shortly after 23:00 London time, or catch it on the BBC’s webcast here or download the podcast here.
