Interview with Detainee G

Since the attacks of 11th September 2001 on the World Trade Centre in the US, Detainee G has been one of the War on Terror’s longest standing victims. Having been through nearly the entire counter-terrorism policies the UK government could conceive and implement, at every turn, he has managed to defeat the allegations against him. Even today he is suffering from a process that denies him his rights and psychologically tortures him and his family. Fighting deportation to his home country of Algeria, he speaks to Cageprisoners about the last seven years.

Interview with Sophie Lemarche Harkat

Sophie Lemarche is the wife of Mohammed Harakat, a detainee who has been held under Canada’s controversial security certificates since 2002. The security certificates are Canada’s attempt to bring detention without charge in through the back door and Lemarche has spent the last six years campaigning against these measures. She speaks to Cageprisoners about how the certificates have affected her husband and their lives.

Cageprisoners today publishes an exclusive interview with Terry C. Holdbrooks Jr, a former guard at the notorious prison camps in Guantanamo Bay.

He eventually embraced Islam in the presence of former British resident, Ahmed Errachidi, known by the Guantanamo guards as ‘The General’. Holdbrooks has now spoken publicly due to his outrage at the policies taking place in Guantanamo and the continued unlawful detention of prisoners.

Nowhere To Go

Sweden's complicity in the world-wide detention of Monir Awad

Download the latest Cageprisoners report regarding the targetting and profiling of people from or travelling to the Horn of Africa. Based on cases collected by Cageprisoners researchers, this report points to worrying developments in the War on Terror.

The case of Aafia Siddiqui has brought with it a wave of emotion from all corners of the world. The detention of this woman, and allegedly her children, has evoked condemnation from politicians, lawyers and activists all over the world.

One of the key features of Fabricating Terrorism II, is the case of Farid Hilali. The case demonstrates that the UK security/intelligence officials were complicit in the rendition and torture of individuals as early as two years prior to 9/11. This fact suggests that the unlawful activities of the UK authorities are systematic, rather than rare abuses.

This clarification document has been written in the wake of a number of requests that have been received asking for clarification on the role of Muslim leadership in collaborating with the security services and police in counter-terrorism efforts in the UK.
