By a strange coincidence, his case is likely to be heard jointly with that of Abdul Hakin Belhaj, when the government defends its position in the UK Supreme Court early in 2015.
He is a Libyan Islamist who was rendered from Thailand, with the assistance of MI6, in March 2004 – a few days before the two men captured in Baghdad – on that same CIA Boeing 737.
These cases, and particularly the Baghdad one, marked a high point for official UK co-operation with the US detention practices highlighted in last week’s Senate Intelligence Committee report.
Yet these incidents, and a number of others subject to legal action or investigation in the UK, are not mentioned in the report.
