This all seems pretty meaningless to me, they are distinguishing between using torture evidence "in court" and "to prevent terrorist attacks". So anyone who's been found to be conspiring or planning any terrorist activity, and therefore are seen as a threat to the nation, can still be locked away in Belmarsh or some such place. Regardless of whether that information came from torture or not.

Think this is more related to the recent shit with the americans flying people all over the place and supposedly torturing them, cos if its found that they did torture them, then any evidence gathered cant be used, so theyll have to drop charges ....
