A former British terrorism suspect says he was tortured on behalf of MI5 during a holiday to Egypt.
Azhar Khan, 26, has hired a solicitor to take court action against the British Government, saying he was stripped naked, hooded, handcuffed and shackled during five days of interrogation.
He says he was beaten around the body with sticks, subjected to electric shocks and prevented from sitting or lying down.
His allegations come on top of those made by former Guantanamo Bay detainee Binyam Mohammed who says he was tortured in Pakistan and Morocco on behalf of MI5.
His claims have received support from the High Court and are being investigated by the Attorney General, Baroness Scotland.
Azhar Khan’s sister married Omar Khyam, who is currently serving life in jail for planning a fertilizer bomb attack on the Bluewater shopping centre in Kent and the Ministry of Sound nightclub in central London.
