UK anti-terrorism police release Guantanamo men

UK police have freed the last of five Britons flown home from Guantanamo Bay prison camp after they were handed over by the United States to British custody on Tuesday. One of the five was released immediately, but four others released from the US naval base at Guantanamo Bay were still being questioned by anti-terrorism police on Wednesday after they were arrested at a military airbase near London. They were later all released without charge. Speaking for two of the men, Gareth Peirce, a lawyer, said that the police had been “compounding two years of injustice”. Ms Peirce said she was concerned that her clients could suffer long-term trauma

as a result of their experience. She told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme: “Their story is an extraordinary one. They have emerged from an extraordinary and terrifying ordeal that would profoundly affect the strongest individual.” Full Story
