British Torture Documents Online

BlairWatch has asked bloggers to publish the memos from Craig Murray, Britain’s former ambassador to Uzbekistan, detailing how the Uzbek Secret Forces passed intelligence obtained through torture to the U.K. The documents show complicity in Uzbek torture by both the British and US governments.

Britain’s Official Secrets Act may be used to prosecute UK bloggers for revealing the contents of the memos. The more the memos appear on non-UK sites, the less the likelihood that will happen. We’re happy to help our British friends who seek to steer the UK and USA toward traveling the path of right human relations. Below is a synopsis of what’s in the documents:

The first document is a series of Telegrams that Craig sent to the Foreign Office, outlining his growing concern and disgust at our use of intelligence passed to the UK by the Uzbek security services.

The second document is a copy of legal advice the Foreign Office sought, to see if they were operating within the Law in accepting torture intelligence, and according to Michael Wood the FCO legal adviser; it is fine, as long as it is not used as evidence.
