  • IPCO's response to ISC report on Detainee Mistreatment and Rendition

    The Intelligence and Security Committee of Parliament has published its reports on Detainee Mistreatment and Rendition. We welcome the ISC’s comprehensive report, and the Prime Minister’s invitation for IPCO to make proposals for how the Consolidated Guidance could be further improved. We will aim to consider our proposals as openly as we can and would encourage contributions from everyone who has an interest in this area.


    The Commissioner said: “The ISC’s excellent reports show that for a period after 9/11 the Government’s approach to mistreatment and rendition fell far below the standard I would expect to, and do, see during my inspections today. I am pleased to be taking forward the review of the Consolidated Guidance and look forward to engaging widely as part of that process.”
