Three of his fingernails were missing

Getting to the bottom of this and ensuring the people involved are held to account is of the very highest importance. We need a judicial inquiry.

"By the time Ahmed was deported to the UK after a lengthy period of unlawful detention [in Pakistan, during which he was interrogated using questions drawn up by MI5 and Manchester police] three of his fingernails were missing".

By the way, if the human rights laws introduced over the last twelve years are actually instrumental in protecting us - which I doubt - then this is their time. If resort has to be made to older legislation or if nothing happens then they really have no point.
