Shaker Aamer can, for the first time, be heard speaking from his prison
cell in Guantanamo Bay as part of a recording made by a US news channel.<br>
 <br>
Mr Aamer, one of 84 cleared men still detained in the US prison (more
than half the total population of 164), was recorded by a crew filming
for the CBS show 60 minutes. Mr Aamer is not pictured on camera but is
heard saying: “Tell the world the truth…Please, we are tired. Either
you leave us to die in peace — or either tell the world the truth. Let
the world hear what’s happening.” Shaker goes on to say, “you cannot
walk even half a metre without being chained.  Is that a human being? 
That’s the treatment of an animal”. <br>
 <br>
It is extremely rare for any recording which can identify an individual
detainee to survive censorship by authorities at the prison who screen
everything which goes in and out of Guantanamo. This unique recording
probably survived review only because the military authorities were
concerned that the consequences of censoring America's most powerful
news program would outweigh the embarrassment of allowing a prisoner to
tell the world what is happening there. On Sunday night Mr Aamer and
his attorney Clive Stafford Smith, from the legal human rights charity
Reprieve, appeared on 60 minutes to discuss his client’s case.<br>
 <br>
Mr Aamer has been held in Guantanamo since 2002 and been cleared for
release by both the Bush and Obama administrations, yet remains
detained without charge. He has British residency, and his British wife
and their four children all live in South London. Earlier this year,
Prime Minister David Cameron raised Mr Aamer’s case with President
Obama at a G8 Summit and the British government has repeatedly stated
that they want Mr Aamer returned to the UK. However, US authorities
have repeatedly threatened to send Mr Aamer to his birthplace of Saudi
Arabia in complete contravention to his stated wishes.<br>
 <br>
                        <strong>Clive Stafford Smith, said</strong>:
"CBS’ show gives a very rare and very shocking glimpse inside
Guantanamo Bay. Everyone in the prison – the guards and the men – is
suffering horribly, day after day. Obama must fulfil his promise to
close the prison and Shaker Aamer must come home to his family in the
UK, which is what David Cameron has said he wants."  <br>
