Tribunal told by parliamentary group that denials of UK complicity in US operations were false
10 November 2011 - Intelligence documents showing how British officials were involved in the secret rendition of UK residents to Guantánamo Bay and other jails – where they say they were abused and tortured – must be disclosed, an information tribunal was told on Thursday.
"Government statements denying UK involvement in rendition have been shown to be false by subsequent statements and court decisions," said lawyers for the all-party parliamentary group on extraordinary rendition. Andrew Tyrie, Conservative MP for Chichester and the group's chairman, referred to inaccurate statements to the Commons by former Labour ministers, notably Jack Straw. Years later, and only after persistent questioning from some backbench MPs and journalists, government assurances were shown to be false, the tribunal heard.
In just two examples, the government had to admit that the British Indian Ocean territory of Diego Garcia had been used by the US in CIA rendition flights and British soldiers had handed over to the US two men who were subsequently incarcerated in the notorious prison in Bagram, Afghanistan, Tyrie said. read more>>>
