Former UK foreign minister David Miliband has criticized his former government for being slow to act against the "bad thing" which the US did to terror suspects following 9/11, The Independent on Sunday reported.

The frontrunner for the leadership of the Britsh Labour Party reaffirmed his commitment to an ethical foreign policy, telling The Independent on Sunday, "Should we have been faster to put those pieces of the jigsaw together? Yes. But is it true that Britain's secret agencies act without ministerial or legal oversight? No. Is it true that serious allegations are swept under the carpet? No. They actually end up with police investigations, which is the strength of our system."
