“I know there are people who do not want me ever to see the sun again.  It means nothing that they have signed papers, as anything can happen before I get out. So if I die, it will be the full responsibility of the Americans”…Shaker Aamer, the last Briton held in Guantanamo Bay, told The Mail on Sunday

AamerShaker Aamer, who will be released from Guantanamo prison within weeks told the Mail on Sunday that he is still fear of his life.

Despite his imminent freedom, Aamer says he is still being subjected to brutal physical abuse by his US captors. The Briton is on hunger strike in protest at an assault by guards, who, he says, forced him to give blood samples.

Mr Aamer has warned his wife and four children in London – including a son who was born after his imprisonment – that he may still not make it out alive from the military prison, where he has been held without charge since he was captured as an alleged Al Qaeda suspect in the wake of 9/11

Aamer has provided an eyewitness account of the torture of a detainee whose false confession paved the way for the invasion of Iraq – a revelation that could have grave consequences for Tony Blair and the troubled Chilcot Inquiry into the war

Mr Aamer said: ‘I know there are people who do not want me ever to see the sun again.
‘It means nothing that they have signed papers, as anything can happen before I get out. So if I die, it will be the full responsibility of the Americans.’
