MI5 involved in illegal transfer of Moroccan national from Belgian prison to London

MI5 was directly involved in the transfer of a Moroccan national, illegally taken from a Belgian prison to work for Britain’s Security Services in London, an investigation by The Independent has discovered.

The man, now aged 29 and who cannot be named for  his own safety, was secretly transferred from a Brussels jail in April  2004 and then further held and interrogated by senior MI5 officers at a  secret base near London.

Documents seen by The  Independent show that in September 2003 a Belgian court sentenced the  man to four years in prison for the use of false documents and  association with terror suspects. Yet less than a year later Home Office papers reveal that the Moroccan, who was born in Rabat, was in Britain  and had been granted leave to remain in the UK by the British  Government.
