LONDON: The family and supporters of “one of the most abused prisoners in Guantanamo” on Tuesday launched a new celebrity-backed campaign demanding his release, coinciding with the publication of his prison diary. Oscar winner Colin Firth and fellow actors Jude Law, Benedict Cumberbatch and John Hurt are among those who will read out extracts from Mohamedou Ould Slahi’s “Guantanamo Diary” to appear on the Guardian newspaper’s website.
US district court judge James Robertson ordered that Slahi be released in 2010 due to lack of evidence that he was directly involved in Al-Qaeda terror plots, but he remains in detention after the Department of Justice appealed the decision (это к вопросу, насколько реально там отдать кого-нибудь под суд, не начав с Обамы).
The 44-year-old swore allegiance to Al-Qaeda after traveling to Afghanistan in the 1990s and fought against the Soviet-backed regime there, but claims he left the group in 1992.
