The memorandum of understanding

The official memorandum of understanding on the release and review of documents related to the treatment of Afghan detainees is now out and available here.

The contentious paragraph of preamble has in fact been changed. A sentence has also been added, at the end of paragraph seven (at the bottom of page 3), to the explanation of how the panel of arbiters shall determine what can be disclosed to the review committee and the public when solicitor-client privilege or cabinet confidentiality is raised.
