SOCPA shame - CPS clutching at bent straws

08-03-2007 20:32

It was nice to see some democracy and justice within a courthouse, for a change.

I would like to offer Judge Wadsworth a huge bouquet of roses and many thanks. After seeing the likes of the bent DJ Evans, the corrupt DJ Snow and their crony DJ Purdy, I have had a small amount of my faith restored in the justice system. For the minute, anyway...

Interview with Moazzam Begg

06-03-2007 20:41

Moazzam Begg

British national Moazzam Begg was a prisoner of the United States for over three years, first at Bagram and Kandahar in Afghanistan, and then at Guantanamo Bay. He was also one of the first six men designated as eligible to be tried by military commissions. He was abruptly released two years ago, and the British authorities cleared him of any involvement in terrorism related activities within hours. He lives with his family in Birmingham, England, and is currently the spokesperson for the activist website Cage Prisoners. Mr. Begg is the author of “Enemy Combatant: My Imprisonment at Guantanamo, Bagram and Kandahar”. On March 1, 2007, I had the privilege of interviewing Mr. Begg by telephone.
