Rehman Chishti MP: 'What I have found is a cloud of secrecy'

Help

The High Court has blocked a legal challenge over claims that the UK government is unlawfully assisting US drone attacks by passing information to the Central Intelligence Agency.

Noor Khan, whose father was killed in a suspected CIA drone strike in northern Pakistan, had wanted a full judicial review.

But the court said it will not review whether GCHQ was sharing intelligence.

Government lawyers have said English courts could not rule on the case.

Conservative MP Rehman Chishti told the BBC he believes it is time the government explained its policy, rather than remaining silent.
