Martin Mubanga was held at Gitmo, was found to be an enemy combatant by the first tribunal which 'evaluated' his case — not surprisingly since they wouldn't let him have access to any evidence or witnesses that might support his case. Why? The witnesses were not easily accessible in Guantanamo!
Now he's out, and he's describing a combination of torture and seriously inhumane treatment, despite having been, he says plausibly, utterly innocent.
How I entered the hellish world of Guantanamo Bay: For many months after Mubanga was seized in Zambia with the help of British intelligence and sent to Guantánamo, the American authorities maintained that he was a dangerous 'enemy combatant', an undercover al-Qaeda operative who had travelled from Afghanistan on a false passport and appeared to be on a mission to reconnoitre Jewish organisations in New York. But documents obtained by The Observer now reveal that by the end of last October the Pentagon's own legal staff had grave doubts about his status, and had overturned a ruling that he was a terrorist by Guantánamo's Combatant Status Review Tribunal.
Like the other three men who were released last month, Moazzam Begg, Feroz Abbasi and Richard Belmar, Mubanga was held for one night at Paddington Green police station on his return to Britain and questioned. He was released unconditionally, the police having concluded within just a few hours that there was no evidence to sustain charges of terrorism.
While it's true that Mubanga's allegations of mistreatment are just allegations, they are consistent with memos by FBI agents who visited Gitmo, as later released under the Freedom of Information Act. Thus, this seems like additional plausible evidence of what's been going on in Rumsfeld's and Gonzales's little playground. (Sadly, treatment may have been even worse before some prisoners were shipped to Gitmo.) The kangaroo court nature of the status hearing is consistent with the account in Judge Joyce Hens Green's recent opinion
