Torture Victims Challenge Decision Not to Prosecute for Libyan Renditions

Reprieve

British prosecutors are facing a court challenge on their decision not to bring charges over the UK government's role in the rendition of two families to Gaddafi’s Libya.

MI6’s then counter-terrorism chief Sir Mark Allen took credit for the kidnap operation in a fax to Gaddafi’s intelligence head Musa Kusa in 2004. The Metropolitan police launched an investigation in 2012 after the document was uncovered during the Libyan revolution. Police handed the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) a 28,000 page dossier in 2014.
