No MI5 prosecution over Binyam Mohamed 'torture'

No MI5 prosecution over Binyam Mohamed 'torture' 17 Nov 2010 An MI5 officer will not be prosecuted over claims he was complicit in the torture of former Guantánamo Bay detainee Binyam Mohamed. Scotland Yard launched an inquiry after Mr Mohamed said an employee of the Security Service was aware of his ill-treatment while he was being held in Pakistan in 2002. But director of public prosecutions Keir Starmer said there was "insufficient evidence" to prosecute the man, known as witness B, for any offence.
