Earlier today I was made aware that the Outside the Law: stories from Guantanamo event while fully booked out, Moazzam Begg was not going to participate, now Sunny @ Pickled Politics has this statement (and promising more tomorrow) by Begg which I think credibly raises the question why this campaign now to discredit him and his wish it does not overshadow the work being done.
Also see Sam Zarifi, Amnesty International’s Asia-Pacific Director has responded to the article written by the desperate Richard Kerbaj in yesterday’s Sunday Times. He says Kerbaj- ‘mischaracterizes my views.‘ This would appear to be a not uncommon modus operandi for Kerbaj as I have shown. Gita Sahgal continues her campaign but is yet to meet with Begg, but as she clearly has time for interviews with The Times and as Begg will have some spare time, they could now. In fact a neutral venue with Sunny Hundal as moderator would be ideal, stream it live on the web and let’s see what there is to see.
