Shaker Aamer is a British resident with a British wife and children who has been imprisoned without trial by the US in Bagram Airforce Base and Guantanamo Bay for over ten years.
Shaker Aamer was cleared for release by the Bush Administration in June 2007. In January 2010, the Obama Task Force Review re-affirmed that decision. In August 2007 the UK Government, recognised Shaker’s right to return as a long-term resident and requested his release to the UK. This request was “strenuously” repeated on subsequent occasions. David Cameron stated, in July 2010, that the Coalition Government will continue to request Shaker’s release.
Despite all this, Shaker Aamer is still detained.
