WARSAW (Reuters) - Poland's government has sent an official note to U.S. authorities seeking diplomatic assurances that an inmate at the U.S. military jail in Guantanamo Bay will not be subject to the death penalty, the Polish Foreign Ministry said on Tuesday.

The European Court of Human Rights ruled earlier this year that the Guantanamo inmate, Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri, had been held illegally in a CIA jail on Polish soil and later transferred into U.S. jurisdiction without due process.
