UK security agents were complicit in torture of at least 10 Britons in collusion with Pakistans ISI and the network run much deeper,according to a report that will further embarrass Gordon Brown-led British government.
The issue is not just British complicity in the torture of British citizens,it is the issue of British complicity in the torture period, Ali Dayan Hasan,who led the Pakistan-based inquiry for the Human Rights Watch said. We know of at least 10 cases,but the complicity probably runs much deeper because it involves a series of terror suspects who are Pakistani. He said sources in ISI,the IB and the military security services provided confirmation and information relating to UK collusion in such interrogations. The report will embarrass Foreign Secretary David Miliband,who has said the UK does not condone torture,the Observer reported on Sunday.
Hasan said evidence indicated a modus operandi among UK security services,involving a number of MI5 agents. These are not incidents involving one particular rogue officer or two,but rather an array of individuals involved over a period of several years.
