Ex-Guantanamo Detainee Moazzam Begg Arrested In Terrorism Case
An outspoken former Guantanamo Bay detainee was arrested by British police Tuesday on suspicion of Syria-related terrorism offenses. Moazzam Begg, a British father-of-four, is suspected of attending a Syria terrorist training camp and facilitating terrorism overseas, police said. Begg was arrested in Pakistan in 2002 on suspicion of supporting and recruiting for al-Qaeda, and was taken to Guantanamo Bay the following year. He filed a lawsuit against the British government over his detention – eventually reaching an out-of-court settlement – and went on to write a book about his experiences: “Enemy Combatant: The Terrifying True Story of a Briton in Guantanamo.”
