Gitmo detainee who claimed torture is freed after 7 years


news.yahoo.com

LONDON – A Guantanamo prisoner who claims he was tortured at a covert CIA site in Morocco returned to Britain a free man Monday after nearly seven years in U.S. captivity — the first inmate from the U.S. prison camp freed since President Barack Obama took office.

Binyam Mohamed, once accused by U.S. officials of being part of a conspiracy to detonate a "dirty bomb" on American soil, flew to a British military base.

He was released after being interviewed for four hours by police and immigration officials. He had to fill out new paperwork for residency since his permit expired in 2004.

Mohamed's claims of torture, abuse and extraordinary rendition are at the heart of several lawsuits. Lawyers on both sides of the Atlantic are suing for secret documents they say prove the United States sent Mohamed to Morocco and that Britain knew of the mistreatment — a violation under the 1994 U.N. Convention Against Torture.

Hmmmmm, shocking NO CHARGES and no accounting for the 18 months he was in Morocco a guest at a secret CIA prison in the desert. Even if this guy is guilty of anything they will never be able to charge him as you cannot use evidence obtained by torture in court. I have no issue with locking these guys up forever, just go about it the right way. Not so much to ask eh?
