Assurances sought that there was no Metropolitan Police complicity in torture

Human Rights Watch has published a report, Cruel Britannia, which alleges the complicity of “UK officials” in the torture and mistreatment of terrorist suspects in Pakistan.
At today’s meeting of the Metropolitan Police Authority I asked the Commissioner, Sir Paul Stephenson, whether he could give an assurance that none of the British officials described in the Human Rights Watch report could have been Metropolitan Police officers (most comments have focused on MI6 officers, but there also will have been Metropolitan Police officers in Pakistan at various times). He undertook to check that his understanding was correct and that he could give such an assurance.
