United Kingdom: Two terrorism suspects win appeal against deportation to Libya

On 27 April, the Special Immigration Appeals Commission (SIAC) blocked the deportation of two Libyans after concluding that the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed by the UK Government with Libya and other assurances against torture given by Libya did not offer the two men sufficient protection against ill-treatment if sent back to Libya. SIAC ordered their release but subject to strict conditions, including a daily 12-hour curfew. The UK Government said it would appeal the ruling.
