Update: Court of Appeal hearing on rendition and torture to take place tomorrow (13th)

A Court of Appeal hearing concerning the 2004 kidnap, torture and ‘rendition’ of Yunus Rahmatullah by UK and US forces has been postponed until 10am tomorrow (Friday 13th).

The case is being brought by legal charity Reprieve and solicitors Leigh Day on behalf of Yunus Rahmatullah (32), who was captured in Iraq by the UK, tortured and held in the notorious Abu Ghraib prison, before being ‘rendered’ to Afghanistan by the US. He then faced a decade of detention without charge or trial in Bagram prison, before being released in 2014.
