Tim Crook on Court of Appeal CIA torture case

Court specialist and journalism lecturer Tim Crook's latest blog concentrates on this week's Court of Appeal ruling on the alleged CIA torture of a British resident, alleged collusion by MI5, whether redacted paragraphs dealing with the allegations should be released in a High Court ruling, and the defence of MI5 by Director-General Jonathan Evans.
Tim says: "The UK government and its lawyers have to come to terms with an unassailable and incontrovertible reality. They have been unanimously defeated through the proper and due process of law."
