' A jury would never convict me for campaigning against torture'

PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCMENT via Ringverse @ Blairwatch

''For those of you not familiar with him, Craig Murray was formerly the British Ambassador to Uzbekistan, until he took a stand over our use of intelligence obtained by torture that is.

Craig's book,
Murder in Samarkand has just been published.
This has happened despite the best efforts of the British Government to suppress it. In support of the points he makes in his book, Craig has published a number of documents online that the British Government does not want you to see. Yesterday Craig received a letter from lawyers acting on behalf of the Foreign Office demanding that he remove the documents from his website by 4pm Monday 10th July or he will be issued with a high court injunction.

Do take the time to have a look through the documents.

If you feel that this information is something that should not be taken offline by Monday, well, you know what to do...

Thanks for helping to publicise this, Rachel. It seems pretty telling that the government seems to have the time and manpower to sue a human rights campaigner for "breach of crown copyright", but not, apparently, to hold a public inquiry into the biggest peacetime atrocity the UK has ever seen...

Can you please tell me why your country hasn't expelled this individual? Listen to his rant here:

This individual is a loathsome terrorist sympathizer. And they are in your midst. God save the U.K.

Anon, the individual is under police investigation, and your comment is rather off topic.
