ISC report reveals it was ‘asleep at the wheel’ over lawyer-snooping allegations
 
A report published today by Parliament’s Intelligence and Security Committee (ISC) reveals that MPs have questioned the security agencies over allegations that “information obtained through GCHQ’s interception activities may have enabled them to ‘rig’ ongoing civil and criminal cases” brought by victims of a joint MI6-CIA ‘rendition’ and torture operation.
 
The victims concerned are Abdul-hakim Belhadj, a former Gaddafi opponent, and his wife Fatima Boudchar, and the al Saadi family – of whom Reprieve can urgently seek to restore their right to a fair trial.”
 
ENDS
