Judges ban secret evidence in Guantánamo compensation case

Ministers and the security services were blocked today from using secret information to defend a damages claim by six former Guantánamo Bay detainees.

Binyam Mohamed and five former prisoners are claiming damages against the Government for complicity in torture and extraordinary rendition.

But in a victory for the men, Lord Neuberger of Abbotsbury, the Master of the Rolls, and two other appeal judges unanimously ruled that it was not open to the courts to order the "closed material procedure" in an ordinary civil claim.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What happened to these men was absolutely horrendous; but that they are finally getting their day in court will, hopefully, open the eyes of the British public (and the world) just what "extreme interrogation measures" meant, and unfortunately still means, under the US definition.

What is really sickening is that the US is still using these tactics against prisoners of war, and these tactics are banned under the statues of the Geneva Convention (to which I believe, the US is still, allegedly, a signatory).
