Al-Qaeda terrorists launch human rights bid - Telegraph Moaning like bitches about terrorists appealing to the ECHR on a point of fact rather than a point of law. Then revealing toward the end of the article that the characteristic instrument of the despot, the Public Interest Immunity Certificate, was issued by HMG to prevent the trial and appeal courts from even seeing the evidence which might support the terrorists' contention that the evidence used against them was adduced under torture. What a total farce "justice" in this country has become. Note the common law principle that PII certificates must be accepted by judges at face value - i.e. the basis of their being issued must not be probed. (edit) - the things once learns. Seemingly said common law principle was overturned by the House of Lords.
