Detainee P's letter , Jan 06
This message is from a disabled detainee recently released from high security prison into the isolation of house arrest. He now lives alone in a flat and is only allowed two hours outside each day (12.00 – 2.00pm) within his immediate area. Only visitors vetted by the Home Office are allowed. more


Extracts of a letter received from Detainee I, MX8760, Full Sutton, York. YO141PS , Nov 05
' We lost our bail hearing and are waiting on what will happen next month. As far as I am concerned, maybe little. This Government are determined to keep people behind bars for a political purpose. Our situation is degrading day by day. We have not seen the sky for more than 3 months. The cells are very cold.' see more


A Cry for help from Detainee A, MX8754, incarcerated in HMP Full Sutton, York, Sep 05
I must admit you have raised my morale in this confined unit. What has happened to us is very bad. We are now called by the media "preachers of hate". Last month we were called "a risk to national security". Basically, we are scapegoats. see more


A Cry from the Forgotten Detainees of Conscience, Mar 05
...We prisoners, detained against our will, would like to thank every one of you who has helped, by whatever means, to liberate our Brother detainees who were detained without charge or trial. We were emotionally overwhelmed by the huge support around the country from all human beings, Muslim and non-Muslim alike. So thank you very much.

We are prisoners who were wrongly arrested by British government agents to please the sadistic mood of corrupt regimes that want to extradite us. We have been in prison for long periods of time, ranging between 2 and 10 years, without charge or trial. The British government use the fig leaf of "extradition" to cover its shame of our detention.

We were, and still are, subjected to harsh, degrading and humiliating treatment in Belmarsh and other prisons.

Injustice is more than fate. It is man-made and you must expose it.
