Way To Go Reprieve

Click on the title for the analysis by Reprieve of the decision on Thursday of the British Court in the case of Binyam Mohamed. Clive also summarizes the analysis this way: (a) the US cannot be depended upon to provide fair discovery with respect to Guantanamo; (b) US denials of the rendition and torture of Binyam Mohamed are "untenable"; (c) the UK was complicit in the illegality; and (d) given that complicity and the unreliability of US discovery mechanisms, the UK must provide disclosure itself.
