Given the seriousness of the allegations and the case, in 2009, Conservative MP David Davis used parliamentary privilege to reveal more of the basis of Mr. Ahmed’s allegations and what had actually happened to him. The text of Mr. Davis’ statement can be read at:
Clearly one of the cases that will feature in the upcoming Gibson Inquiry and a further test of the government’s reliance on secret evidence in courts, Mr. Ahmed’s appeal will be heard tomorrow (and for the next few days) at the Court of Appeal in London.
The hearing starts at 10.30am in Court 7 at the Court of Appeal at the Royal Courts of Justice, Strand, WC2A 2LL
