A U.K. court has ordered disclosure of information critical of the MI5 spy agency in the case of alleged torture against a Guantanamo Bay detainee.

The paragraph critical of the agency’s actions had been removed from a ruling ordering the government to disclose key intelligence data.

That happened after government lawyer Jonathan Sumption, sent a letter to the three judges urging them to revise allegations that MI5 had a questionable record on human rights.

The appeals court ruled on Friday the paragraph should be published.

Ethiopia—born Mohamed was arrested in Pakistan in 2002 and says he was tortured there and in Morocco before being flown to Guantanamo Bay. He was released in February 2009, never having faced a trial.
