A Forever Prisoner

G-Bay Diary Book Cover

NPR’s David Welna  updates NPR listeners on Mohamedou Ould Slahi, a forever prisoner at Guantanamo Bay, and author of Guantanamo Diary.  Written in long-hand,  the book describes his nearly 14-year ordeal as a detainee at Guantanamo Bay. The US Government redacted much of the work and has prohibited the author from seeing a published print copy of his book.

The story details the torture Mr. Slahi was subjected to at Guantanamo Bay and discusses the legal limbo he now resides in as a forever prisoner.

Welna interviews Mr. Slahi’s attorney, Nancy Hollander, and others during the story. You can find the NPR story (and interviews) here.
