Govt 'making it clear to US they want Aamer released'

Britain wants the US to release Shaker Aamer, who has been held in Guantanamo Bay for 12 years without charge, and return him to the UK, a Foreign Office spokesman told ITV News.

Mr Aamer’s case remains a high priority for the UK Government and we continue to make clear to the US at the highest levels that we want him released and returned to the UK as a matter of urgency.

We have received the letter from Reprieve and will respond fully in due course.
