Spring 2002

       Martin Mubanga, who holds dual British and Zambian citizenship, and his sister Constance Mubanga are arrested in Zambia “on false charges of motor vehicle theft,” according to his lawyers. After a detention of several weeks, Zambian authorities send Constance to the UK, but turn Martin over to the US government, “without due process and in violation of the laws of Zambia ....” Martin is subsequently flown to Guantanamo, [Sources: Petition for writ of habeas corpus for Bisher al-Rawi, Jamil el-Banna and Martin Mubanga, 7/8/2004] where he arrives on April 20, 2002. [Independent, 8/8/2004]
People and organizations involved: Martin Mubanga
          

March 24, 2003

       Briton Martin Mubanga, a Guantanamo detainee since April 20, 2002 (see Spring 2002), writes coded letters from his cell to his relatives. He says US guards at the base have threatened him with sexual assault and physical violence. He also reports that US soldiers attempt to “shame” Muslim prisoners by offering them prostitutes. [Independent, 8/8/2004]
People and organizations involved: Martin Mubanga
          

June 15, 2004

       In Guantanamo, British/Zambian detainee Martin Mubanga is taken from his cell for interrogation. After several hours of questioning, he asks his interrogator to let him use the lavatory. But according to Mubanga, the official says: “You'll go when I say so.” When the interrogator leaves the room, Mubanga feels forced to urinate on the floor. The interrogator returns with a mop, dips it in the puddle and begins to cover Mubanga with his own urine, “like he's using a big paintbrush.” “All the while,” Mubanga relates, “he's racially abusing me, cussing me: ‘Oh, the poor little negro, the poor little nigger.’ ” [The Observer, 2/6/2005]
People and organizations involved: Martin Mubanga
          

January 12, 2005

       The Pentagon announces that the US has agreed to release five prisoners from Guantanamo. They include Mamdouh Habib, an Australian, and the four remaining Britons: Feroz Abbasi, Moazzam Begg, Jamaal Belmar and Martin Mubanga. British Foreign Secretary Jack Straw says the Britons' release is the result of his “intensive and complex” discussions with the US. [New York Times, 1/12/2005] Australian Attorney General Philip Ruddock says the Australian government requested Habib's repatriation to Australia after the US said it did not intend to bring Habin to trial. [ABC News, 1/11/2005]
People and organizations involved: Jamaal Belmar, Feroz Abbasi, Moazzam Begg, Mamdouh Habib, Martin Mubanga, Jack Straw, Philip Ruddock
