Reprieve: UK Government should take action

The director of the legal charity Reprieve has urged the UK Government to do more to help Shaker Aamer.

"Shaker has a wife and four British kids – one of whom he’s never met – in London. The UK just accepts routine assurances from the US that all is well, when all is rotten in Guantanamo Bay. Does the UK really take the position that there is nothing more that can be done if a close ally is committing the on-going torture of Shaker Aamer?”
