LONDON (AP) – Britain’s High Court says the government must disclose secret details of a former Guantanamo Bay detainee’s alleged torture.

Judges said Friday that Foreign Secretary David Miliband should release sections of a 2008 ruling on the treatment of Binyam Mohamed.

Mohamed, an Ethiopian who moved to Britain as a teenager, was arrested in 2002 in Pakistan. He says he was tortured there and in Morocco before he was transferred to Afghanistan and, in 2004, to the U.S. prison at Guantanamo Bay.

Miliband had argued that disclosing details of Mohamed’s treatment could damage intelligence cooperation between Britain and the United States. He said he was “deeply disappointed” with the ruling and

intended to appeal.
