The goals of the APPG are two-fold:
- To establish the truth about the scope and scale of UK involvement in rendition.
- To reduce the likelihood of the recurrence of UK complicity in extraordinary rendition by closing the gap in criminal law for such conduct.
The APPG is a parliamentary body, run by Members of the House of Commons and the House of Lords. It is an informal, cross-party group that has no official status within Parliament and is not accorded any powers by it.
The APPG is supported by contributions from trusts, foundations, nongovernmental organisations and private individuals. It receives no money from any government. The House of Commons does not take responsibility for the content of this website.
The APPG's entry in the Official register is available online.
