The BBC reported on Saturday that four of the five British Guantánamo detainees are to be released.

Amnesty’s UK spokesman Neil Durkin welcomed the move and said:

“We will now be seeking to establish why Shaker Aamer is expected to go to Saudi Arabia, why Binyam Mohammed is apparently not set for return and why another former UK resident – Ahmed Belbacha – has not been mentioned in these reports.”
