Former Labour Foreign Secretary Jack Straw looks set to be sued over a rendition case which dates back to 2004 in Libya.
Straw faces allegations of abduction and torture brought by Abdul-Hakim Belhaj a so-called former Libyan dissident.
Straw is accused as he was responsible for MI6 at that time; MI6 helped the US kidnap Belhaj in Bangkok in 2004 in order to return him and his wife to Tripoli.
BBC News reports Tuesday "Mr Belhaj, a leading opponent of then Libyan leader Colonel Muammar Gaddafi, says he was abducted - along with his pregnant wife, Fatima Boudchar - as he attempted to fly to London to claim UK asylum. After being returned to Libya, he spent six years in jail, while his wife was released shortly before giving birth. Mr Belhaj, who was once regarded by Western intelligence services as a terrorism suspect, alleges he was tortured by his Libyan jailers and questioned by British intelligence officers during his detention."
Tuesday the Supreme Court in the UK backed a Court of Appeal ruling allowing him to sue.
Mr Belhaj, 50, reportedly is determined to sue "unless he receives an apology and a token £1 in damages."
For him now it is all about an apology.

The story of this man highlights how a person can be deemed a terrorist and rebranded a freedom fighter to suit.
