    UK compensates Guantanamo Bay victims millions

    The British government will pay several million dollars in compensation in an out-of-court settlement to several former Guantanamo Bay detainees, according to media reports.

    Justice Secretary Ken Clarke will reveal details of the settlement later this morning, government sources confirmed.

    The move follows British Prime Minister David Cameron's decision in July to launch an inquiry into Britain's role in torture since the September 2001 terrorist attacks.

    Cameron said then that the inquiry was intended to halt the number of claims being brought against the government by former prisoners alleging abuse sanctioned by ministers and MI5 and M16 intelligence officers. The prime minister added that the inquiry would only begin after the former detainees' cases had been resolved.

    It's 'cause they have a Queen, for some reason they tend to be lacking in balls.

    US will do the same thing eventually. Pay off those victims so they don't talk
    Naivety to think otherwise.

    Who cares if they talk? Not a lot of sympathy for jihadists, at least none from anyone on the right side of this war. Cockroaches deserve to be stepped on.

    Of course, England has allowed itself to be taken over by Middle Eastern immigrants, so there might be a little preventative maintenance going on there.

    Sad.

    LOL at the immigrant slur. Over 90% of UK is White and majority of Immigrants are African or Asian. Not Middle Eastern

    I doubt it's "hush money". Who really cares what they say?

    The government is only trying to ingratiate themselves with those of a terrorist bent.

    Of course this is hush money. What else can it be described as?
    UK Government is desperate for them to not take this to Court as they will be making the claim that it was British intelligence and State which colluded for them to be illegally detained and then tortured. Thousands of secret files would have to be opened and the State clearly knows it will lose so is trying to pay them off.

    Basically here is your money now shut the f*ck up and get out.
