Best-Selling Author Pleads To Be Freed From Guantanamo

A Mauritanian man whose best-selling book provided a rare window into US prison life at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba and alleged torture tactics that have been shrouded in secrecy is asking a review board to clear him for release after 14 years of being held without charge. 
Mohamedou Ould Slahi "understands his past mistakes", denounces any forms of "violent jihad", and has "never taken any hostile action" against the United States, according to his lawyers. 
  • The US alleges that Slahi, 45, swore an oath to al-Qaeda and was a recruiter who also helped to facilitate the travel of alleged September 11 attacks planner Ramzi bin al-Shibh, currently in Guantanamo, and two other 9/11 hijackers.
Retired Colonel Morris Davis, a former chief prosecutor for the Guantanamo Bay military commissions - who years ago met Slahi and examined his case closely - told Al Jazeera he could find no grounds on which to charge Slahi with any offence.
"He's spent a long time in confinement for someone [for whom] there is no evidence that he committed a crime," Davis said.
