More on Aamer:
Shaker Aamer has been detained in Guantanamo since 2002. He has four British children – the youngest of whom he has never met – and a British wife who all live in London. The UK government has repeatedly stated that they want Shaker back in the UK and last week the US announced it is to restart transfers from the prison, beginning with two Algerian men. Yet Shaker remains locked away without charge or trial. He is one of over half the detainees on hunger strike in protest at their indefinite and illegal detention.
