Cameron Urged to Act On Shaker Aamer After US Defense Secretary Says Case Is 'Not On Desk'

LONDON - Lawyers for a British resident held at Guantanamo Bay for the last 13 years have urged the Prime Minister to press the US for a timeline for his release, after it emerged that the case was 'not on the desk' of the US Defense Secretary.

Shaker Aamer, a father of four from South London, has been detained at the military prison since February 14th 2002. He has twice been cleared for release, and has never faced trial or been charged with a crime.
