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.
