Tories call for judicial inquiry into Binyam case


Former shadow home secretary David Davis has called for a judicial inquiry into the role of the security services in the Binyam Mohamed case.

It follows the Court of Appeal's decision to publish criticism of MI5 which says some of its agents have a "dubious record" with regards to the former Guantanamo Bay detainee.

A controversial paragraph suggested that MI5 officers had been involved in coercive techniques and had failed to operate in a culture that respected human rights.

Mr Davis said it was the right judgement to publish details of the ruling.
