David Cameron agrees terms of UK torture inquiry

Judge-led investigation would examine claims of British complicity in abuse and rendition of terrorism suspects

David Cameron and the foreign secretary, William Hague, are understood to have agreed the terms of a judge-led inquiry into claims that British security services were complicit in torture of terrorism suspects.

The inquiry is expected to offer compensation in cases, where necessary, and is likely to be held in private. A judge-led inquiry or commission may have the advantage of bringing together the 13 separate compensation cases currently going through the courts.

Those cases are leading to complex demands for the disclosure of documents that the intelligence services may not welcome, and are finding difficult to control. Some of the litigants have demanded an inquiry as part of their civil claims.

Cameron is understood to have discussed the issue in recent days with President Obama, but no decision is expected very shortly.
