9:05 am
on the tenth of may twenty eighth the wife of a libyan politician i'm told lawyers held up an historic document a letter of apology from the british prime minister the u.k. lost its way when i got mixed up in the rendition of an innocent pregnant woman and an anti kadafi dissident but today i think it stood on the right side of history by recognizing its mistakes and by apologizing. abdulhakim bell high and his wife fatima bouchard had been fighting for six years to get the british government to
9:06 am
admit it rendered them and handed them over to the regime of moammar gadhafi in two thousand and four knowing that as libyan dissidents bay would be in serious person danger on behalf of her majesty's government i apologize on reservedly we are profoundly sorry for the ordeal that you both suffered and our role in it. this film follows the troubling story of the opponents of gadhafi who were imprisoned tortured and in some cases killed because the u.k. u.s. and other western governments colluded in a web of unlawful rendition. colonel moammar gadhafi was the libyan leader from one thousand nine hundred sixty nine to twenty eleven. he was a controversial figure with an ambiguous relationship with the west. his
9:07 am
erratic behavior made it easy for the u.s. and europe to portray him as an out of control figure behind terrorist attacks conspiracies and scandals. but there was more to this relationship than was obvious at the time. in two thousand and four the west suddenly rebranded to gadhafi from public enemy number one to their new best friend. but all the while gadhafi is intelligence service the cia and the british m i six cooperated with each other in ways few suspected at the time. one such case was that of in all shake our lead he said to have run a military campaign in afghanistan. he was captured by the pakistanis enough canister after the fall of the taliban in two thousand and one and then handed over
9:08 am
to the americans at baghran air base for interrogation by the f.b.i. . but the cia decided libby was a high ranking al qaeda figure and sent him to egypt to be interrogated. the information he provided under torture may not have been reliable but was nevertheless used by the u.s. to demonstrate a connection between saddam hussein and al qaida to justify the two thousand and three iraq. around two thousand and five two thousand and six ali bin was then handed over by the u.s. to libya in the process known as rendition. in two thousand and nine he was found dead in his prison cell in tripoli after having supposedly committed suicide. humanitarian organizations questioning the suicide including human rights
9:09 am
watch who visited our live in just before his death. the case of even is one of the more disturbing ones because we know that the u.s. rendered him unlawfully into a gypsy in custody and he was tortured brutally both in us and in egypt in custody and the result of that torture produced false intelligence that led. was used as as reason to go to war in iraq and as a result of that war iraqi you know many civilians iraqi civilians u.s. forces lost their lives. it's disturbing because it's an also proof in evidence that torture doesn't work that it produces false intelligence on many occasions of any of them on some of the ship was not. a libya was a victim of. collusion between the u.s. the u.k. and libya which dated back to the nine eleven attacks on new york and washington
9:10 am
d.c. . after the libyan revolution in twenty eleven thousands of secret libyan american and british intelligence documents were found they painted a dark picture of the real relationship between the three countries which led directly to our libby's rendition and torture physician of. hundreds of and that. you who were yet if it'll be a she one way bill went away and i left a bit of the. old. kind on her dinner and. eat them turkey that in a muslim oversight i did them attack it from afghanistan. in the. will of the chef in libya. you know must.
9:11 am
get a mostly men. on. the shuttle and why. i libby's nephew says the torture started in afghanistan but then continued in other prisons around the world in egypt morocco guantanamo bay alaska and ukraine for five years in. the hassle when early early early yet year after that the what deeds in efi alabama's been up or being upset that city. subtle but in a man who had the mostly subtle but. it's looking at akira libby's information
9:12 am
about so-called weapons of mass destruction is widely thought to have been used by the u.s. as evidence of saddam hussein's possession of w m d's in iraq one less thing you pointed out that you were warned of believed by the egyptian president mubarak i believe what barak told you tommy tommy franks that saddam had biological weapons they were ready yeah but everybody thought he had the international community has clearly demonstrated that it is way is it a process which has been going on for twelve years trying to disarm iraq from its weapons of mass destruction this report by libyan intelligence the external security organization or. shows details of a meeting with the cia. as it plans to invade saddam hussein's iraq in two thousand and three the u.s. needed to prepare public opinion for the attack getting libya on govt is key to
9:13 am
that strategy. but the iraq war when battle for the western allies. no evidence of dangerous weapons was found and the lack of a post-war strategy plunged the country into calles. gadhafi then seized the moment in a dramatic bedouin gratiot to himself with the west and have sanctions on libya lifted he claimed to have w m d's and offered to surrender them. desperate to put a positive spin on their mission to destroy weapons in the middle east the u.s. and u.k. led the way in rehabilitating gadhafi almost overnight. libya was
9:14 am
no longer. part of the axis of evil. in return a lucrative oil and gas deal was signed and it was then that the cia and m i six began increasing their rendition of libyan dissidents to the gadhafi regime. in a vehicle that out of. the value of the home. but it's now fought the relationship between the head of the e.s.o. . and western intelligence went back much earlier than the aftermath of the two thousand and three invasion of iraq repression between the two states gathered pace after nine eleven. british intelligence held a meeting with mr koussa in the week after nine eleven and the following november november two thousand a wall british and libyan intelligence officers held a summit over several days at a hotel as an airport in europe and the german austrian intelligence officers also
9:15 am
present. and there was a a growing agreement at that point that the libyans could be quite useful to the west being useful to the west was what gadhafi was aiming for and the west fell for it but at a price. rendition. this twenty twelve human rights watch report delivers into enemy hands details the process and several cases including that in our sake and libya. that there is an agreement reached that the british and the ins would start recruiting agents jointly. from the libyan agents who would would spoil. the rehabilitation of gadhafi took place under british prime minister tony blair and when gordon brown to go over from blair in june two thousand and seven the friendly momentum continues
9:16 am
and. the london based human rights organization reprieve has closely monitored rendition for many years lawyer corey krieger specialized in cases involving libya. you remember and the deal in the desert in two thousand and four is that daffy says oh well i'm joining the community of nations everybody was right you know the war on i've looked at iraq and you know i don't want to go that way and all the rest of it said this president has given to him but the reality is of course what happened after that the sanctions were lifted british petroleum and other companies were able to come in and start doing business to the tune of millions in fact billions of dollars i'll just zero made requests to interview tony blair in twenty four team but his office said he was not available. the producers also asked to interview former british foreign minister jack straw
9:17 am
who was responsible for british intelligence six at the time of the rendition but his office said he didn't have time. neither was therefore able to shed light on when dishan pieces like that of. shaken libby was returned in two to maybe in custody and. you know we met him two weeks before he supposedly kit committed suicide in his cell. and when that happened we raised concerns about the circumstances surrounding his death. we were concerned that it was not actually a suicide libby was allowed a single visit from his family in april two thousand and nine while in libyan detention this video shows him opponent lee comfortable and his family had no reason to suspect he might soon take his own life if you just didn't get them to him and he doesn't mean.
9:18 am
we're going to logic up a nickel when the limit open is only about the. time and that week. no mr darrow this will be. another what in the. iraq. war but what the what that the family kind. of i'm somewhat of a shift and how would a number economy so the cold war the war when we had a war early was a lot. of about was over such and coupled with either that or can you some in the future hold what are their beliefs and some a signal that. the u.s. is said to have handed over it no sheikh are libby to the libyan external security
9:19 am
organization in afghanistan. under the smell of somebody in the libyan government still with them a ship in libya most of them to keep them in may two thousand and nine libby was found dead in his prison cell only two days after that gadhafi was fourth son want to seem acting as libyan national security advisor u.s. secretary of state hillary clinton in washington d.c. we deeply value the relationship between the united states and libya we have many opportunities to deepen and broaden our cooperation and i'm very much looking forward to. building on this relationship so mr minister welcome so much here. with the way. for that certainly not to be our when he comes to know what was it's and what can be and can you move can look at a fascinating. last of
9:20 am
a year. it's difficult and we can. stated that. human rights watch asked for an investigation into a suicide but he was birthed and no libyan inquiry was held into his death. so the photographs are very disturbing when reportedly committed suicide in may be in prison and we question whether that was really a suicide and these photographs reveal things that make it seem as though you know that it might not have the jimmy been a suicide. gadhafi never allowed any form of opposition within libya. a prominent dissident group was the libyan islamic fighting group the l i f g who gadhafi accused of having links to al qaida. if you can little rock. give your head of.
9:21 am
the. yeah gladly will help. that gadhafi is jails had an appalling reputation for mistreatment and torture particularly of political prisoners this mobile phone video purports to have been shot in abu salim prison in tripoli. human rights watch and amnesty international have both reported hundreds of deaths in abu salim although the figures have never been independently verified or human remains found if western intelligence services knowingly colluded in the torture of libyan dissidents in this way they certainly have a case towards. the western agenda was to establish a connection between saddam hussein and al qaeda whereas gadhafi wanted to link
9:22 am
libyan dissident groups to al qaida. or station. illiteracy in the search a lot of then. the new relationship with gadhafi spread and there are allegations that he illegally funded a nicolas sarkozy's two thousand and seven french presidential campaign sarkozy has been charged with illegal campaign financing he denies the charges and the case is yet to reach the french courts gadhafi was welcomed across europe a far cry from his eighty's image as quote the mad dog of the middle east. but there were there was other that whatever our business i call my living yeah i said mother thought that but at the same time opponents of gadhafi like our door hakim behind and sami our side of the libya islamic fighting group l i f g were arrested and rendered by british intelligence m i six to gadhafi is external
9:23 am
security organization we are going to just turn up our. supply and. by then. they are most of the total loss so yeah by then what are. they or fear they going to say you know balad. i mean if you have see if you her hair t. . well it myself and i'm also on it in my new mom you know. there are limits over there was you know but if i knew. that and i was at one and i'm any. of. fema pot about coke or. you know. what if you see. about rendition had the lid blown off it when
9:24 am
in the wake of the libyan revolution and twenty eleven correspondence was phoned the pointed to western collusion. in two thousand and eleven after tripoli was liberated some human rights activists and some revolutionaries found an incredible cache of documents in what appeared to be the abandoned office of then the head of libya's security services and in those documents for the first time ever we saw evidence showing that there was a joint plot in two thousand and four to kidnap. him and his pregnant wife as well as the libyan man semi all saudi his wife and his four children from exile in southeast asia and render them in other words kidnap them and send them back to that. and we can see diminished. and bob ross how. zosia to you. see and walk out

9:26 am
thousand and four the couple were planning to seek asylum in the u.k. but they were persuaded by the british to travel to london via bangkok. there they were arrested and tortured before being rendered to libyan intelligence headed by musar koussa battles. and. can. only get out of the need to know them well and was of course current. and elysium illicitly or you can imagine how. many of them have you know either candidate. bell houses fellow dissidents sami most of saadi also says he was rendered to the libyans by the british on the grounds that he was somehow connected to the group responsible for nine eleven al qaida.
9:27 am
to offer to my law my. dad. and i are keen and i was on it and we're here and i lament i mean i'm. well i'm not but and then you know either can i come in and. work at the enemy living in a kind of. fear or. yellow morning. in the morning or we had enough and i went to. abdel hakim bell high and sami al saadi were released from prison in libya in twenty ten and twenty eleven respectively. convinced of u.k. . involvement in their rendition in twenty twelve they decided to sue the british government in the civil court for handing them over to the libyans to be imprisoned

9:34 am
and fellow dissidents samuelsson sues the british government in twenty twelve they were represented by human rights lawyers in london interviewed here in twenty fifty where the case was still going on well the key documents that we saw where what appeared to be faxes and correspondence between. the what appeared to be from m i six to the libyan authorities notifying them of the presence of the king about how to his wife fatima at that time in malaysia well the government has sent very blank defenses so far basically saying. tonight the events even those events that is supported by the documentation and what they have instead done is try to get the case struck out of course by saying that because the allegations involve the u.s. and other states in libya malaysia. that it would be the cause here don't
9:35 am
have jurisdiction to deal with it that it would be wrong because he possibly criticized the actions of other states at first the u.k. government basically said you can't hear these cases at all here in britain because it will harm our relationship with the united states the americans will be terribly upset about it and so forth. or. why then. if you have a magna x. amount i said i want. to freeze and then i. couldn't wear and. in control for. the most years old. man i washed. the whole two feable are bound by my mother to have usually normally seven cars over to my. mother when i only have. one of the thousands of papers found after the revolution in twenty eleven was this
9:36 am
one marked top secret it refers to libya u.s. cooperation and to a list of names of so-called traitors which was given to the americans. at all food men in. america and what i think isn't as you are. seeing well it's only willingly mr money. and a. little difficult on. someone. to be in your brain in. one ear. and was cobble something really really sickly a. bit on the card well a bit on the hardest libya obviously. isn't a military really kind of a plan and. one of. many
9:37 am
where they had that a yemeni. lisa early. in the sleeve. she has a mini holy they were parted with. and. i had to see that. i want to lift the levy walk and when i. was. one of the most significant finds in tripoli was a letter written by so mark allen then head of counterintelligence at m i six in march two thousand and four to the head of the libyan p.s.o. . it says quote i congratulate you on the safe arrival of. meaning. this was the least we could do for you and for libya to demonstrate the remarkable relationship we have built over the years i am
9:38 am
so glad that the british security services the cia and the libyan kidnapped children between the ages of sixteen felt twelve and send them to get out. i know what i sits and i work and. there was no more and no one. what they needed was. the civil cases. and some run side by side but also accepted an offer of compensation by the british government bell hollows however wanted a full apology from the government the former foreign secretary and former head of counterintelligence identify six the british government settled that case in december two thousand and twelve for two point two million pounds in the short of the how mean. you.
9:39 am
see out of the. and. so i think that we know really what the truth is here and that the british government knows that it has a case to answer. won't accept such a settlement because he wants an apology he's made it clear that he wants he was a bit of goodwill to apologise what was going to have and also what was done to his wife mr bahamas for his part his offer to drive his case and walk away from his civil court case for just three pounds one from some are counted one from jack straw and one from the government and an apology and that's the real problem the british government is worried about apologizing because they feel that if they do that there's a risk that former security service people who were involved in this kidnapping might be prosecuted and might go to jail and one of the even who won and yet to be finance we have reacted to iran. and if you believe this we are going to america
9:40 am
all of the. kabul. if this were merely our example of we learned. what followed when. the many where we are to that i'm here or in the here. if it is proved that british officials did torture anyone whether in the ek or broad or involved complicit in their torch head they need to account to criminal law in the case i'm actually pretty confident that the supreme court of britain is going to say that of course torture victims have to have their day in court but the reality is the government will always seek to delay it's an incredibly embarrassing case what case could be more embarrassing than british security services kidnapping pregnant ladies and sending them back to dictators like it afa it doesn't get any worse for them while the british government settled with something else saudi the us government appears
9:41 am
so far to have ignored the whole rendition issue even though papers discovered in twenty eleven point clearly to their involvement according to human rights watch documents show that the cia kidnapped khaled are sorry for a most of our marketing and rendered them to the libyans the men say they were detained and interrogated in afghanistan for over a year. the documents that were we found in the libyan intelligence ministry were very troubling they showed a level of cooperation between the united states the united kingdom and the cia in their rendition of a number unlawful rendition of a number of individuals who were enemies of gadhafi back to libya it shows a deep level of collusion between the u.s. and the u.k. and libya it rendering individuals into gadhafi as hands at a time when we knew that gadhafi was mistreating abusing detainees in custody you
9:42 am
saw our team. just leave. a live you're at about feel about if you will. about as human a sharp and i would you know are you i would and we walk arm. and they were so how much you until i did mean in the middle of nashville and when he. would out there are blocking my car then the men in clue gave them a kind of monopoly of us over that they can the men. well not only about what i'm in islamabad but about the weather. as a v the amount of the united states believes and promotes itself as a country that believes in the rule of law and abides by its international legal obligations but we know for a fact that the u.s. has not done so in many cases especially with regards to its detention practices.
9:43 am
is that in. the year or say that they're. there's a move for a we'll have. a double to hit book of mormon. with their behavior with the comes with a camera which made it more difficult for the bush administration to carry out its program of torture they continued to do so but in a different kind of way. and since. the president obama took office he did ban the use of enhanced interrogation techniques and actually has called the practices that occurred during the cia torture program torture the u.s. unlawfully rendered numerous individuals into libyan custody where they knew that they were going to be. they were going to be likely tortured and abused but in addition before they even did that they held several of them in cia detention and tortured them brutally themselves so yes it's a double standard and double standard that the u.s.
9:44 am
absolutely has to account for if it ever wants to put this dark chapter in its history behind it and the muslim in america. the. loser in. the meticulous and. move them of the who are who. you are it's what's one of them to do with the what was al-jazeera asked the cia to comment on all of these allegations but they did not reply. there's evidence that it wasn't just british and american intelligence who colluded with the libyans canada may have also been involved most of a career a canadian citizen of libyan descent says he was tracked kidnapped and rendered to libyan intelligence he says he was accused of having links with so-called international terrorism but that this has never been proved going to miss you if
9:45 am
you want to move. can who i. am i will marry more. of couldn't have the bus that america a colony and read then and then and then why you know if you can it. at least i'm going to need it and i must be would wish them to be made in it or the rule of law within this in order to them to do it on the island in the middle name silly today let's list that has are things very kind of if you know that in karate for can you read any of the mini act of the faint illusion about the matter with the only. candidate in correspondence between libyan intelligence and the canadians is a letter from the libyans saying thank you for the information about the arrest of the canadian citizen most of our mohammad clear otherwise known as found out of the ally f.g. in the summer of two thousand and two we greatly value the information we have
9:46 am
received on it and what it has about what it in the future if it was that. has the fewest in a can bury them obama moment and had their word as a thought for quite a long way and you know that meant well how would any of that but at the. well tony key that another would lend us any of what was said as these and look at of them and do it for a limited one solution. what the sick if you. want to continue. that how early center thing said if they were having. a fool and me. being. a loony and they're going to cut come to be. while for me to. go to medical and democrat the influence of learning for that was not to learn of
9:47 am
learn of learn with learn from them. but that journey. military for. female. when i will hardly be a man if it. according to korea the libyans had information on him that they could only have obtained through collusion with canadian or american intelligence this would again have been at a time when gadhafi was still considered an enemy of the west had in my room a minute mr heel and you coolly she has a. very fair be here. at woman she has. many little thought. about our count of the earth and if she. looked at the field of the youth to him she heard of the weather may only you for what they know will be better than those heady and i could not as i wish well implement the seal and. the free. food and soft of it on to luck i.
9:48 am
had a gentleman and i and i met a mess and. you would work. with a sheet of. should work and should be. so you will fall go get this document says that the americans wanted to know whether most of our mohamed korea had any information that might assist the nine eleven investigation. that mary. had there was a lot that a lot of inertia had. been going gerty you know and credit of the delegates. well i do remember. that the. well was not worth the effort. and most of that to be about know what when where and when she'll win just by then just but yes
9:49 am
you know last of the i will feel and. look at her look at that well i'm looking at whether or not i don't know us but an al-jazeera asked the canadian security intelligence service to comment on most of her clothes allegations they replied to say they do not comment publicly on specific cases but they are that our exchanges with foreign agencies are always guided by a playable law ministerial direction and a robust suite of internal policies all to ensure that c.s.i.s. is not complicit directly or indirectly in the mistreatment of any individual and that everything we do to keep canada safe is consistent with canadian values al-jazeera came across another case that of abraham we see another libyan opponent of gadhafi this time in ireland. he says he was detained for questioning by the
9:50 am

the u.k. the wheels of justice had been turning in the case about the hakim. on the tenth of may twenty eighth there was a dramatic development. the head of the british government prime minister to resign may sent a letter of apology to bell harsh and his wife fatima and in the british parliament the senior lawyer the attorney general made an announcement. on behalf of her majesty's government i apologize on reservedly we are profoundly sorry for the ordeal that you both suffered and roll in. the house had been waiting fourteen years for this moment so his response was direct to our home and good attorney. and i still feel you are to.

be. another woman but a funny if it is the fed can have it they're still. fighting and their lawyers showed the prime minister's letter of apology to the assembled journalists. the u.k. lost its way when it got mixed up in the rendition of an innocent pregnant woman and to get out he just didn't but today i think it stood on the right side of history by recognizing its mistakes and by apologizing. it's important to note that although the british government apologize for rendering the boat hajis to libya former foreign minister jack straw and former head of counter intelligence today my six so more column have noted noted personal responsibility for any wrongdoing in the case of bob. and fatima bush. furthermore in october twentieth the former head of libyan intelligence. publicly denied any complicity in

the torture of political detainee or in one thousand nine hundred ninety six massacre at abu salim prison. al-jazeera spoke to corey cruder after the british government apology for me the most important moment when the british government apologized in may was the part of the prime minister's letter where she essentially says we believe you. abdullah came in fact and i had to relive the absolute bottom the worst moments of their lives for six and a half years to fight this case and we know how survivors of torture and abuse like theirs are often silenced and disbelieved so for the prime minister of the united kingdom to say in her apology we believe what you have said we believe that the cia and the libyans tortured you that for me it was the most powerful moment i don't think that the apology does totally close the rendition issue altogether for under the human fault to me it does it in the chapter it ends the case they are satisfied

that's the end of it but this isn't just a historical issue anymore is it so for example we know that gina has somebody who is at the very heart of the american torture and rendition program has been promoted to be director of the cia now and we also know that all around the world. there are still security agencies with which the u.s. and the u.k. cooperate every day who torture prisoners so right now as we speak in yemen the united arab emirates is running black sites in which detainees are tortured and which rape is used as a technique of torture and these are people within the u.s. and the u.k. isn't coalition and so i think that there's a real moral ethical and legal question for the security services in the u.s. and the u.k. about how closely they're going to fly to abusive security agencies and what the line in the sand is really going to be. the prime minister's apology may have restored the british government's reputation showing it was willing to try to right previous wrong. about how did not to be for the tenacity of human rights lawyers it
