Bagram prisoner`s bid for freedom rebuffed in UK
London: Britain`s Court of Appeal has accepted that the government has been unable to comply with an order to obtain the release of a Pakistani man from a US military
prison in Afghanistan.
In December, lawyers for Yunus Rahmatullah won a writ of habeas corpus from the court to compel British officials to bring the prisoner before the court.
But today government lawyers said the US has refused to release the prisoner, and the Court of Appeal accepted that outcome.
Lawyers for the legal rights group Reprieve contended that international law required Britain to be responsible for his care since British forces in Iraq originally seized him in 2004.
He was turned over to US custody and transferred to the detention facility at Bagram air base in Afghanistan.
