A Letter from Shaker Aamer's wife

Since 13 February 2002, Shaker Aamer has been detained without charge or trial in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Despite being cleared for release by the United States Department of Defense, he continues to languish at the detention camps even though the UK government has specifically requested his release.

His youngest son, Faris, has never met his father and still continues to wonder what such a relationship means to this very day. In this exclusive letter CagePrisoners, Zinnera Aamer writes of the pain and suffering her family have been forced endure.
