Fugitive Terror Suspect claimed torture / UK News


The terror suspect who escaped after dressing in a burka is claiming damages from the Government, alleging he was tortured.

Mohammed Ahmed Mohamed, who vanished from a London mosque dressed in a burka on Friday, has launched a human rights legal challenge to the Government at High Court today.

The 27-year-old managed is the subject of a Terrorism Prevention and Investigation Measure but managed to lose surveillance by disguising himself as a woman.

It has been claimed that he has been trained and fought for the al-Qaeda-linked Somali group al-Shabaab.

The manhunt currently includes the Metropolitan Police’s counter terrorism command, MI5 and the UK Border Force.

The High Court today heard how Mohamed was bringing a claim against the Foreign Office, the Home Office, the Ministry of Defence and the Attorney General.

Mohamed and another, referred to as CF, accuse the British authorities of bringing about their arrest by Somaliland authorities in January 2011 and then being complicit in their detention and torture.

Mohamed launched his damages claim under a cloak of anonymity and was referred to in court papers as “MA”.

But anonymity was lifted today following his disappearance.
