Court records reveal terror suspect who escaped UK surveillance was suing UK authorities

From The Washington Post: LONDON — A terror suspect who vanished after switching into women’s clothes at a London mosque is seeking damages from the British government for alleged complicity in torture and mistreatment, the U.K.’s High Court revealed Thursday.

Mohammed Ahmed Mohamed, 27, evaded stringent government surveillance when he disappeared Friday wearing a burka. Police are still searching for him.

Mohamed and another man — identified as “CF” — were detained by Somaliland authorities on Jan. 14, 2011, and held until their removal to the U.K. on March 13 of that year. Both claim they were unlawfully detained, tortured and mistreated during the detention in Somaliland.
