Ask the government to release more information about MI5/MI6 complicity in torture

Kenneth Clarke is planning to suppress the release of documents that would help the public to understand the scale of Britain's complicity in torture by third party countries. The government has intervened in the High Court case by paying off those who suffered from torture, and launching an internal inquiry which is likely to keep any further information secret from the general public.

If recent history is anything to go by, this internal inquiry will not lead to reform.

We need to have a full public inquiry to allow the media to report on this properly and for the public to understand exactly why this happened. There is no reason why the documents involved cannot be redacted, if "US security concerns" are the primary reasoning for withholding this information.
