Police cleared Guantanamo Bay Detainee

 

A New South Wales police investigation cleared Guantanamo Bay detainee, Mamdouh Habib, of any predisposition towards violence a month before his arrest in Pakistan. Rather, Mr Habib had made extensive complaints to authorities about his prayer group.

Mr Habib claimed he was beaten by a member of his musalla (prayer group) who claimed he was a CIA operative. His family claim he was in looking to relocate to Pakistan to escape from the persecution and harassment.

Mr Habib has been in detention by the US military at Guantanamo Bay for over 20 months without charges being laid against him. He is one of two Australian prisoners held at Camp X-Ray.

Damned if you do, damned if you don't.

Have to say, it doesn't look like he is a al-Qaeda operative. Just another religious nut.

  eh  
 
i doubt he is. i doubt the other aussie is too. my bet is they were just in the wrong place at the wrong time and because they caught that american taliban guy, they cuffed these two as well.
wasnt it asio which cleared him of being a terrorist back in 2001?
