RELEASE SHAKER AAMER, THE LAST BRITISH RESIDENT IN GUANTANAMO BAY

Muslim World

On 11 April, over 100,000 people signed a petition calling on the UK government to undertake urgent and new initiatives to achieve the immediate transfer of Shaker Aamer from Guantanamo Bay to the United Kingdom. Shaker Aamer, a British resident, has been held in Guantanamo Bay for over 10 years, despite not having stood trial for any crimes and having been cleared for release by the US authorities. As news emerges from Guantanamo Bay of a widespread hunger strike among the prisoners, with some being critically unwell, the Muslim Council of Britain called upon the UK government to redouble its efforts to bring Shaker Aamer home. The MCB joined the call of 25 international human rights NGOs who have signed an open letter calling on Obama to close the prison.
