This report looks at the handling and interrogation of detainees from the campaigns in Afghanistan and Iraq. This report aims to establish: Whether UK intelligence personnel were involved in or witnessed any abuses; Whether UK intelligence personnel were sufficiently well trained; When Ministers were informed of staff concerns about the abuse of detainees; It concludes that out of approximately 2,000 interviews there were fewer than 15 cases of potential breaches of UK policy or the international Conventions. These cases occurred in difficult and unusual operating conditions where lack of specific training added to the problems. The difficulty of finding the balance between the duty to obtain intelligence and abide by the rules is further complicated by the different ways US and UK authorities interpret the Conventions.
