Muslim accused!

Hundreds demonstrated in Birmingham and London at the end of February, protesting at the arrest of former Guantanamo detainee Moazzam Begg. Begg, who remains in custody, denies charges of ‘providing terrorist training’ in Syria or ‘funding terrorism overseas’.

After his passport was withdrawn in February, Begg stated that the real reason he was continually harassed was that Cage (formerly ‘Cageprisoners’) and he were at the forefront of investigating ‘evidence that British governments, past and present, have been wilfully complicit in torture.’
