Sami al Saadi's wait for judge-led inquiry continues

Sapna Malik, of the human rights team representing the al Saadi family, said today:

The sheer terror experienced by the al Saadi family when they were bundled on to their rendition flight and delivered up to their nemesis clearly lives with them all to this day.

Having concluded one part of their quest for justice, they now look to the British criminal courts to hold those responsible for their ordeal to account and await the judge-led inquiry they have been promised.
