A judicial review is underway of the Prime Minister’s decision on 18 July 2019 not to hold an independent inquiry into UK complicity in rendition and torture. On 9 June 2020 there was an open hearing before the Divisional Court to establish the degree of open disclosure that is required in these proceedings. The judges sat in the Royal Courts of Justice, but the parties appeared remotely. The substantive claim is due to be heard in October.
Angus McCullough QC is instructed with Tim Buley QC of Landmark Chambers, as a special advocate in the proceedings.
