UK High Court rejects Pak man’s attempt to reveal ‘Britain’s role in US drone attacks’
London: The UK High Court has rejected an attempt by a Pakistani man to force the British government to reveal if it is providing intelligence for US drone strikes.
Noor Khan, whose father died in a drone strike in Pakistan, said the UK could be committing a war crime by helping the CIA to identify targets.
According to the BBC, the court said it could not force the government to reveal its policy.
Lord Justice Moses said that oversight of intelligence arrangements in this case was for Parliament, not the court.
The UK government neither confirms nor denies any role in assisting with operations against al Qaeda, the report said.
The UK operates its own unmanned drones in Afghanistan, but these operations were not part of this case, it added.
According to the report, Khan is to appeal against Friday`s ruling.
