Below is the email from Hhugs:
Newham Bookshop and Newham Monitoring Project invite you to join former Guantanamo Bay detainee Moazzam Begg (in conversation with Asad Rehman, chair of NMP) for the launch of his book
'Enemy Combatant: A British Muslim's Journey to Guantanamo and Back'
At 7pm on Monday 20th March
Moazzam Begg was detained in Guantanamo Bay between February 2003 and
January 2005, one of nine British citizens to be held there. He had been
abducted by Pakistani intelligence services and held without charge in
Bagram for a year before being handed over to the US intelligence services
to be detained in Guantanamo Bay.
During his captivity in Guantanamo Bay he was held in solitary confinement, routinely tortured and threatened with death. He was eventually released without any charge in January 2005 after years of campaigning by his family and a long legal battle lead by his lawyer Gareth Peirce - best known for her work with the Guildford Four. Following his release he actively campaigned for the release of five other Britons held in Guantanamo.
