Britain's own Guantánamo


www.guardian.co.uk

Piece by piece, the truth is finally coming out about Britain's own Guantánamo Bay – Diego Garcia. Today the human rights lawyers group Reprieve began a legal case on behalf of Saad Iqbal Madni, who they say was transited through the UK-controlled Indian Ocean island as part of the CIA's secret rendition programme.

Madni, whom Reprieve says was tortured in Egypt, Afghanistan, and Guantánamo Bay after his stopover in Diego Garcia, has been released in Pakistan where – according to Clive Stafford Smith, the Reprieve director – he is "effectively crippled by his torture".

Diego Garcia is a US base, not British.

lol

'the United Kingdom owns the island', the US has a base on the UK owned island, 'The British and United States Government agreements allowed the US access to part of the island to construct a communication station and subsequently a Naval Support Facility. The British do not charge the US any rent.' www.globalsecurity.org...

Anyway, doesn't surprise me, always thought the UK agencies were complicit in all the torture/rendition stuff.....'For more than six years following the declaration of a war on terror in 2001, British and US officials adamantly rejected the existence of a rendition facility or secret CIA prison on the island, the site of a major British-American military base since the 1970s' www.guardian.co.uk...

course they denied it

the only `problem` with wanting to live there is the small minor fact the UK broke a bazillion human rights laws , bulldozing the local population into the sea to build the airbase:


news.bbc.co.uk...

the UK government has lost in court at ecery step and still refuses to comply with international court orders.

Yeah youd want to keep up with current events and just be aware of whats going on with things, its probably legit not propaganda I mean seems trustworthy, now a days you can never tell. Secret CIA prisons I heard they use to do tests on people on acid in the dark , experiments with implants ( the old tale of "2 way radios" ), and sleep deprivation & sensory deprivation.

This is disgusting. How can Britain just move in and take the land from the inhabitants. Tyranny. And they attack Sadam on the same basis, and O "weapons of mass destructions" [SNIP].

Im really REALLY frustrated that the idiotic sheep-like masses just allow this to happen. Bloody scandelous.

Great, so after this guy wins his "human rights" case (paid for by the taxpayer) we'll give him a nice house in Bournemouth and £50,000 a year (paid for by the taxpayer). Then give it a year and he'll pop up in Afghanistan fighting British forces.

It's about time we woke up to the fact that WE ARE AT WAR and stopped giving quarter to our enemies.
