From Pam Gellar: He won a million pounds because his human rights were violated, he claimed, by being held in Guantanamo. “Robin Simcox, a national security researcher, said: ‘The payout was always very morally questionable. These people made a lot of allegations against the security services that I believe were extremely spurious. The Government settled because they said it was cheaper.’”
They said it was cheaper. That could be the epitaph of Britain. The Government settled because they said it was cheaper. The Government settled for Islamic supremacism, for Sharia, for rape gangs, for the death of free speech, for the oppression of women, for the terrorizing of non-Muslims, for the banning of counter-jihadists, for the surrender of their nation…because it was cheaper.
Muslim Jamal Kiyemba, who was detained in Guantanamo Bay prison for four years, is being questioned in relation to the murder of Ugandan judge Joan Kagezi, who was killed days before a major terror trial.
Ms Kagezi was due to hear the case of an al-Shabaab bombing in the Ugandan capital Kampala, which killed 76 people while they watched the World Cup final in 2010.
But she was shot in the head and neck as she went on a food shop with her children on March 30.
Kiyemba has been named as one of six detained in Kampala on Tuesday by the US counter-terrorism team.
The Ugandan-born 36-year-old who had lived in London since his teens, was arrested in Pakistan on the border with Afghanistan in 2002 for attempting to join the Taliban.
He claimed he had gone to Pakistan to learn Arabic and study the Koran but was detained in high security prisons in Pakistan, Bagram in Afghanistan then Guantanamo for four years.
When he was released without charge he was banned from entering the UK.
According to the Sun he claimed his human rights were violated and, along with 15 other Guantanamo detainees was awarded a share of a £20million payout from the Government.
They decided to settle to prevent national security secrets airing in court.
His campaign was backed by CAGE, which also supports ISIS killer Jihadi John.
Kiyemba’s arrest raises further question over his connections to Islamist extremists, and undermines the arguments he gave to win the £1million payout from the taxpayer.
Robin Simcox, a national security researcher, said: “The payout was always very morally questionable. These people made a lot of allegations against the security services that I believe were extremely spurious. The Government settled because they said it was cheaper.
“The idea these people were innocents in the wrong place at the wrong time was always ridiculous. This arrest would seem to underline that.”
Tory minister Ben Wallace added: “If Kiyemba is convicted taxpayers should be refunded and he should get a one-way ticket back to Guantanamo.”
Ugandan police spokesman Fred Enanga said there was no conclusive evidence tying Kiyemba to the killing of Ms Kagezi, but that detectives were questioning him about his possible role and about other offences.
