Widely circulated this (but the wider the better, I'm sure you'll agree): former UK ambassador to Uzbekistan Craig Murray is being strong-armed by the Foreign Office into returning documents "relating to details of the UK's use of 'evidence' obtained from torture in Uzbekistan. The particular embarrassment here is that Foreign Secretary Jack Straw has claimed that [the UK] does not use 'information' obtained through torture elsewhere." (this quote via Dead Men Left, but see also Chicken Yoghurt, Lenin's Tomb, BlairWatchMorning Star, Daily Kos,, Empire Burlesque and the Independent newspaper for more on this).
