The Government has agreed to pay more than £2 million to the family of a Libyan dissident after accepting its role in his illegal rendition, his legal team said today.
Sami al Saadi, a leading Gaddafi opponent, was imprisoned and tortured after he was forced to board a plane back to Tripoli along with his wife and four children in 2004.
Ministers are now understood to have offered him a sum of £2.2 million for its role in the joint UK-US-Libyan operation, but the Government has not admitted liability, Mr al Saadi said.
