The British government tried to rein in US policy in Iraq from the outset of the March 2003 invasion but found itself powerless to do so. David Blunkett, Home Secretary at the time of the invasion, told newspapers that Vice President Dick Cheney and Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld could not be diverted from their goal of dismantling the Iraqi Baathist government system.

Please do not deport Detainee "Y" to possible torture and/or death in Algeria

A message from Eleanor

“Y” is a torture survivor who had been granted refugee status in the UK. In 2005, he was acquitted, together with others, of all charges in connection with an alleged conspiracy to produce poisons and/or explosives. He was released from custody in April 2005, where he had been held since January 2003. He was later re-arrested and held pending deportation.

“Y” appealed to SIAC against being labelled a risk to national security by the UK authorities, as well as on the grounds that returning him to Algeria would expose him to a real risk of torture.

We, the undersigned, request that “Y” be released or charged and tried in open court on the evidence supposedly held against him. To deport him to Algeria would be tantamount to condemning him to torture and possibly subsequent death.
