MI6 chief Sir John Sawers says torture illegal

Sir John Sawers said MI6 staff would have "nothing whatsoever" to do with torture

The head of MI6, Sir John Sawers, has described torture as "illegal and abhorrent" and defended the service's need for secrecy.

"He said: "Torture is illegal and abhorrent under any circumstances and we have nothing whatsoever to do with it.

Sorry. I just do not believe this.
Yes, but I believe he might be telling the truth as far as he knows. Very often there are cross-orders from above him (the Foreign Secretary) to underneath him for this very reason - maintaining deniability.
