This petition requests the release from Camp Delta, Guantanamo Bay, of the Sudanese journalist and cameraman, Sami al-Haj, who was arrested while doing his job and has never had any connection with terrorism.
We the undersigned request the release from detention in Camp Delta, Guantanamo Bay, of Mr Sami al-Haj, a Sudanese journalist and cameraman employed by Aljazeera Qatar Broadcast TV. He was arrested 6 years ago on his way back from covering news about Al-Quaeda in Afghanistan and was in no way involved in any terrorist activity. He was simply doing his job. His family is now extremely concerned about his health fearing that he may die in captivity. His children desperately need their father and his wife, her husband. We ask you to release this innocent man and return him to his home and family in Sudan. We thank you for your attention.
