Sami al Saadi, the Libyan dissident who the Government has agreed to pay over his rendition, says he still doesn't know the truth. He said:
– Sami al Saadi, rendition victim
I started this process believing that a British trial would get to the truth in my case. But today, with the Government trying to push through secret courts, I feel that to proceed is not best for my family.
I went through a secret trial once before, in Gaddafi's Libya. In many ways, it was as bad as the torture. It is not an experience I care to repeat.
Even now, the British Government has never given an answer to the simple question: 'Were you involved in the kidnap of me, my wife and my children?
I think the payment speaks for itself.
