Documents concerning CIA rendition of terrorism suspects, with the help of the UK, recovered from the offices of Libyan intelligence and published by Human Rights Watch.
A reportedly “Top Secret” document that was obtained and published by the Guardian. It details rules and procedures allowing members of British intelligence, specifically MI5 and MI6 to obtain information from detainees that have been subject to torture in other jurisdictions. The memo notes that obtaining such information may be in violation of both UK and international law.
The headquarters of the British Secret Intelligence Service, also known as Military Intelligence, Section 6, is located at 85, Albert Embankment in the south western part of central London, on the bank of the River Thames beside Vauxhall Bridge. Designed by Terry Farrell and built by John Laing, the Developer Regalian Properties PLC approached the government in 1987 to assess their interest in the proposed building. At the same time, MI6’s sister service MI5 was seeking alternative accommodation and collocation of the two organisations was considered.
