Scotland Yard detectives plan to interview prisoners at Guantanamo Bay in an explosive twist in the MI6 torture inquiry.
Police are investigating whether an unnamed Secret Intelligence Service officer witnessed the inhumane treatment of detainees by the U.S. military.
Officers have asked the U.S. government for permission to travel to the Cuban detention camp and interview terror suspects who may have seen the incident, according to ITV News.
The investigation began in September 2009 after MI6 referred ‘an incident’ at Bagram U.S. Airbase to the Attorney General, who passed it to the police.
Detectives are trying to track down many of the nearly 50 prisoners who were at the base in Afghanistan in January 2002. Some of these are at Guantanamo.
