Welcome to The APPG on Extraordinary Rendition

Andrew Tyrie MPAndrew Tyrie MP

 

The All Party Parliamentary Group on Extraordinary Rendition was established by Andrew Tyrie in December 2005. It is a cross party grouping of MPs and Peers from the British parliament who have come together to examine extraordinary rendition and related issues.

 

The questions asked by... the All-Party Parliamentary Group are precisely the sort of parliamentary
interrogation and questioning that is wholly appropriate.

The DC Circuit Court agreed with the APPG's argument that Andrew Tyrie and the APPG are not representatives of the British Government for purposes of the Freedom of Information Act and therefore may request information from the American intelligence agencies.  The FOI requests against the intelligence agencies may now proceed.  The opinion can be read here.

 

The report, published by the Foreign Affairs Committee, urged that Diego Garcia "should not be used for rendition unless authority has first been granted by the UK Government, on a case by case basis.  The report can be read here.  More can be read here and here.
