Adel Hamad - en uskyldig Guantanamo-fange
Advokaten til Adel Hamad, en familiefader, skolelærer og ansat i sundhedsvæsnet, som tilsyneladende helt uden at have gjort andet galt end at arbejde i Afghanistan og Pakistan blev arresteret i 2002 og sendt til Guantanamo i 2003, har fremstillet ovenstående video med samtaler med folk, der kendte Hamad - i et forsøg på at forklare verden, at manden altså er uskyldig.
Som man læser på projektet hjemmeside:
Adel Hamad was a teacher of elementary school orphans, a hospital worker, and someone who coordinated the delivery of food, medicine and blankets to refugees. He has been imprisoned for 5 years and classified as an enemy combatant, despite the lack of any allegations or evidence that he ever acted against the U.S. or its allies, or even had political sympathies for those who did. His friends and colleagues describe him as a funny, apolitical man who loved charity work and ping-pong. One of the U.S. Army Majors at his Tribunal called his detention unconscionable.Link.
Growing evidence shows that the majority of prisoners in Guantanamo Bay have not committed any belligerent act against the U.S. or its allies. These prisoners, who have no legal recourse, have not been given their day in court. Nor have their detentions been scrutinized by a judge. They remain in jail year after year, separated from their families, often not fully knowing the accusations against them or the identity of their accusers.
