An MI5 officer involved in the Binyam Mohamed case visited Morocco, the country where he was tortured, three times while he was being held there, it has been disclosed.
The High Court revealed that a Security Service officer who had interviewed Mohamed in Pakistan had also visited Morocco during his detention.
MI5 has admitted feeding questions to the CIA but has always maintained they did not know where Mohamed was being held.
They deny colluding in torture, although the police have launched their first ever inquiry into the service.
Mohamed, an Ethiopian who was living in London, was arrested in Pakistan in April 2002 where he claims he was tortured before being interviewed by an MI5 officer known in court as Witness B.
