I shall be released

On 30 October, Britain’s last Guantánamo detainee, Shaker Aamer, was finally returned to the UK, 13 years after being taken to the prison on Cuba, and eight years after being cleared for release.

Shaker is a permanent UK resident, married to a British woman, with four British children living in London – one of them born the day he was taken to Guantánamo Bay. www.saveshaker.org
