Tony Blair and George Bush should be given immunity from prosecution in order for the world to learn the truth about claims the US and British were complicit in torture at Guantanamo Bay, Shaker Aamer has told ITV News.
"Accusing governments, accusing individuals is not going to give us the chance to know the truth," he told Julie Etchingham in his first TV interview since being released from the notorious prison camp.
The UK's last Guantanamo detainee said he believed the former British prime minister and US president are both "scared" of being jailed, adding: "How can you expect fear is going to bring justice and bring the truth out of these guys?"
Asked whether he expected Mr Blair would reveal more details about Guantanamo, Mr Aamer said: "If he guaranteed that he's not going to be behind bars I think he would. At least he would be more open about it."
Mr Aamer, who has detained for 14 years without charge, said he believed "nobody should be prosecuted because of what happened in the past" in order to prevent it from happening in the future, saying it would not lead to justice.
A spokeswoman for Mr Blair has said he "never condoned" the use of torture.
With his wide, familiar smile, Shaker Aamer has become the image of resilience, writes Julie Etchingham - but now, he's a man on a mission.
The last Brit to be released from Guantanamo told ITV News he broke down in tears when he first met his children at their emotional reunion.
