UK Torture debate in Parliament

Exposed: Britain was involved in the CIA’s torture programme, and some of our politicians knew about it.

Abdul-Hakim Belhaj and his pregnant wife Fatima were kidnapped and tortured in a joint MI6-CIA ‘rendition’ operation in 2004. They brought a case against the UK Government, and offered to settle for an apology and a token payment of one pound. But the government has spent over £600,000 on lawyers in an attempt to stop this torture case being heard in court.  

Government ministers are hoping they’ll never have to properly come clean about torture. But on Wednesday we have a chance to hold them to account. Parliament is debating the UK’s involvement in rendition and torture, and we need to make sure our MPs are there to ask the right questions.

Please can you write to your MP and ask them to attend the debate on torture and make sure the right questions get asked?
