I have avoided writing anything about the alleged "kidnapping and torture" of a group of Pakistani men in Greece for obvious reasons. The story is fraught with claims and counter-claims. Accusations and lies. Denial and back-tracking. Something happened. The problem is no-one knows what, apart from those involved. Today in the Guardian special report it states British diplomatic and intelligence sources yesterday strongly denied suggestions that UK officials were present at the interrogations. This despite what was said three days earlier on the 1st British officials have admitted MI6 officers were present during the interrogation of 28 Pakistanis in Greece, despite apparent denials by Foreign Secretary Jack Straw. I don't know what happened. Only the people involved know that. We can only hope that the truth will be revealed by proper independent investigations.
