Shaker Aamer may 'bring legal proceedings' against British Government

Shaker Aamer, the last British resident to be held at Guantanamo Bay, may 'bring legal proceedings' against the British Government following his release from the military prison.

The 46-year-old who arrived home to the UK on a private plane on Friday had been held at the prison in Cuba for almost 14 years and was undergoing medical tests on Saturday morning.

On his return back to Britain, Aamer paid tribute to his supporters, saying: "Without their devotion to justice I would not be here in Britain now."
