The BBC has learned that the British government approved the rendition, in 2004, of a terrorism suspect to Libya, where he says he was tortured by Colonel Gaddafi's henchmen. This was despite denials from UK ministers that they were involved in the rendition of Abdel Hakim Belhaj, now a military commander for the new Libyan government. Full details in 'Modern Spies' on BBC 2 at 9pm, Monday, 9 April.
