Lindis Percy of the Campaign for the Accountability of American Bases on the complaint about the North Yorkshire site being investigated by the information commissionerI nearly missed the “In brief” news that the information commissioner is to investigate a complaint by Reprieve concerning the secrets of the National Reconnaisance Office/National Security Agency base at Menwith Hill (Inquiry into whether US base breaks British law, 30 May). This is very welcome. However it will be interesting to see how much progress the information commissioner will make.
For years and years some of us have been campaigning to bring acountability and public scrutiny to this US-occupied base concerning the law, the roles and who has oversight of Menwith Hill. We have found out that they do what they like, whether legal or not, and are out of control of the UK government. However, we persist to reveal the truth.
