Three Pakistani immigrants at the centre of claims that MI6 agents were involved in torture in Greece gave a press conference on January 3rd.
They claimed they were "beaten, hooded and menaced" by secret service agents who were named in a Greek newspaper (To Proto Thema) over Xmas. Those accused include Nicholas Langman, a "Counsellor" based at the Embassy in Athens.
A group in Austria managed to hack into the signal broadcast from a CCTV camera using off-the-shelf equipment.
When using the signal, they experimented with ways to block the camera's view and found that laser pointers and balloons were both effective.
The police switched over to using cables rather than radio in their cameras soon after the group's demonstration.
During the No Borders Network picket of Brand Street Immigration Centre this morning (Wednesday 04.01.06) one of the white Securicor vans with blacked out windows drove out and returned an hour later with a, so far unidentified, person detained in the back of it.
