MI6 `turned blind eye` to torture of rendered detainees, finds Gibson report
MI6 officers were under no obligation to report breaches of the Geneva conventions and turned a “blind eye” to the torture of detainees in foreign jails, according to the report into Britain`s involvement in the rendition of terror suspects. Even when individual MI6 and MI5 officers expressed concerns about the abuse of detainees they did not pass on their thoughts for fear of offending the US, Britain`s closest intelligence partner. British officials were reluctant to question sleep deprivation, hooding, and waterboarding for “fear of damaging liaison relationships” — an unmistakable reference to the CIA. http://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2013/dec/19/gibson-report-mi6-detainees-torture-cooperated
