Guantanamo Bay detainee Binyam Mohamed has arrived back in the UK, claiming that his “torturers” were receiving questions and material from British intelligence agents.
Former detainee Mr Mohamed alleges that he was tortured into falsely confessing to terrorist activities and claims MI5 officers were complicit in his abuse.
In his statement, Mr Mohamed said: “I have to say, more in sadness than in anger, that many have been complicit in my own horrors over the past seven years.
“For myself, the very worst moment came when I realised in Morocco that the people who were torturing me were receiving questions and materials from British intelligence.”
Mr Mohamed, a British resident, aged 30, had been held at Guantanamo Bay for more than four years.
An aircraft carrying the 30-year-old landed at RAF Northolt in north west London just after 1pm on Monday.

Concerns had been expressed about Mr Mohamed’s health after he recently went on hunger strike, but he was able to walk off the aircraft without needing support.
