Extraordinary rendition

'Extraordinary rendition'

"Extraordinary rendition" is an extrajudicial procedure in which criminal suspects, generally suspected terrorists or
supporters of terrorist organisations, are sent to other countries for imprisonment and interrogation.[citation needed] The procedure differs from extradition as the purpose of the rendition is to extract information from suspects, while extradition is used to return fugitives so that they can stand trial or fulfill their sentence. Critics of the procedure have accused the CIA of rendering suspects to other countries in order to circumvent U.S. laws prescribing due process and prohibiting torture.
