Burka Suspect Damages

November 7, 2013 by  

Burka Suspect Damages, Terror suspect Mohammed Ahmed Mohamed, who is being hunted by counter-t*rror*sm officers from Scotland Yard, is claiming damages in the High Court.
Burka terror suspect Mohammed Ahmed Mohamed is seeking damages from the Government in a human rights legal challenge involving allegations of torture, it was revealed at the High Court today.

Mohamed, who was the subject of a Terrorism Prevention and Investigation Measure (Tpim), managed to dodge surveillance and disappear by disguising himself as a woman.

The 27-year-old was last seen fleeing a London mosque in the burka on Friday. He is understood to have received training and fought overseas for al-Shabaab, the Somalia-based cell of the militant Islamist group al Qaida.

The Met Police’s counter t*rror*sm command, MI5 and the UK’s Border Force are looking for him.

Today Mr Justice Irwin, sitting at London’s High Court, handed down an interim ruling in the action he is bringing for compensation – the first ruling on the use of the Justice and Security Act 2013 in a civil claim for damages.

His claim is against the Foreign Office, Home Office, Ministry of Defence and the Attorney General.

He and another man, referred to as “CF”, allege the British authorities consented to – or acquiesced in – their detention by the Somaliland authorities on January 14 2011.

The men say British “officers and agents… by their acts and omissions, procured, induced, encouraged or directly caused, or were otherwise complicit in” their detention, assault and mistreatment and torture while they were in Somaliland.

Mohamed launched his damages claim under a cloak of anonymity and was referred to in court papers as “MA”.

But anonymity was lifted today following his disappearance.
