That this House notes that Mohamedou Ould Slahi has been detained in Guantanamo Bay since 2002 without being charged; condemns the torture he has received through Slahi's designation as one of two Special Projects personally approved by then Defence Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, which included beatings, extreme isolation, sleep deprivation; sexual molestation, frigid rooms, shackling in stress positions, and death threats; further notes that the former Chief Prosecutor in Guantanamo has stated that the US Government has no evidence that Mohamedou engaged in acts of hostility towards the United States; applauds Mohamedou for writing an award-winning 466-page handwritten manuscript about his time in Guantanamo Bay; highlights that Mohamedou has been granted a Periodic Review Board hearing in June which may clear him for release; and calls on the Government to make representations to the US government and US Defence Secretary Ash Carter calling for Mohamedou's release.
