The decision today by the High Court allowing publication of secret intelligence matter referring to the Binyam Mohamed case creates a dangerous precedent. As I commented in my BBC interview, the United Kingdom enjoys unique access to intelligence from other English-speaking countries including Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the United States under the UKUSA intelligence agreement. This has operated, without problem, since 1947. Should shared secrets be revealed such cooperation would dry-up. The FCO is right in challenging this decision with his appeal.
