For two weeks, he worked as a guard in the cellblocks, monitoring men who had been captured on the battlefields of Afghanistan.

That sweltering Cuban morning, he was taken from the cellblock he was sharing with speakers of the Afghan language Pashto, none of whom knew English, for what had become his almost daily interrogation.

Shaker Aamer was the last British resident of Guantanamo Bay. Here, he describes what it was like to be held without trial for nearly 14 years. Aamer, 48, was held over extremely serious claims - that he had led a Taliban unit and was an associate of Osama Bin Laden. The US military classified him as a threat, but he was never charged.
