LONDON – The British government lost a legal battle Wednesday to prevent the disclosure of secret U.S. intelligence material relating to allegations of “cruel and inhuman” treatment involving the CIA.

[efoods]London’s Court of Appeal rejected a request by British Foreign Secretary David Miliband to prevent senior judges from disclosing claims that former Guantanamo Bay detainee Binyam Mohamed had been shackled and subjected to sleep deprivation and threats while in U.S. custody.

The office of Dennis Blair, U.S. director of national intelligence, issued a statement saying the British court’s decision “to release classified information provided by the United States is not helpful, and we deeply regret it.”

It indicated the ruling would create “challenges” but the two countries would “remain united in our efforts to fight against violent extremist groups.”
