Amnesty welcomes Binyam Mohamed court decision

Amnesty International today reacted to news that the UK High Court has ordered the release of US documents allegedly detailing the torture of UK resident Binyam Mohammed.

Amnesty International UK Head of Policy and Government Affairs Jeremy Croft said:

“This is a welcome decision. But it should not have needed a court ruling to force the UK government to be transparent about allegations of complicity in torture.

“Today’s ruling underlines the need for a full and impartial inquiry into the UK’s role in human rights abuses in the ‘war on terror’.”
