‘Guantanamo creates deep wounds’

Former Detainees
12 January, 2013 - Guantanamo Bay sends a disturbing signal to the world by regular use of torture, former detainees say. Speaking with RT, they shared painful memories and details of the day-to-day at the prison, which is famous for holding detainees without charge.

Former Guantanamo detainee Bisher Amin Khalil Al-Rawi, 52, is an Iraqi citizen who became a UK resident in 1980s. He was held in Guantanamo from 2002 to 2007. Al-Rawi told RT that he was arrested by the Gambian National Intelligence Agency while on a business trip. He was then turned over to American authorities and transferred to Guantanamo Bay, where he was held on suspicion of having links with Al-Qaeda.

Al-Rawi tells RT that he still feels guilt in front of the other prisoners who have been cleared of charges, but still remain in Guantanamo. read more>>>
