Murray Publishes UK Torture Documents

by Laurence on 12/30/2005 · 1 comment

According toThe Scotsman, former British ambassador Craig Murray may have violated Britain’s Official Secrets Act when he published documents relating to charges that the UK has used evidence obtained under torture:

The Foreign Office can take me to court to try to stop me getting any money from the book. They could also take me to court under the Official Secrets Act and try to put me in prison. But this is such a hot question about torture and intelligence, I don’t think I have any choice but to publish. They can do their worst.

Here’s a link to Murray’s website, where the documents can be found.

[Nathan adds: Has anyone gotten the link to the single jpg to work? For some reason, I always feel better seeing the actual scans of the documents. UPDATE: Scans can be found here.]
