Guantanamo Bay: Binyam Mohamed

Volume 710: debated on Thursday 7 May 2009

Question

Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government how many cases are involved in the Attorney General's inquiry into matters arising from the case of Mr Binyam Mohamed. [HL2214]

I do not propose to give a running commentary on consideration of the matter. What can be said publicly at any given point may depend upon a variety of factors, including whether any police investigation is to follow (and the need to avoid prejudicing any such investigation and potential prosecution), and the need to protect national security.
