Muhammad Sanghir, a native of NWFP, detained after US led attacks over Afghanistan from Northern Kunduz province and freed after 10 months being declared “innocent” by US Officials. According to Muhammad Sanghir he went to Afghanistan for preaching three months before the war began. The US forces arrested him and withheld at Guantanamo Bay for ten months unlawfully.

Sanghir informed reporters, “when I was released, my U.S. captors promised me $2,000 in compensation when I got off the plane in Pakistan -- but I received only $100”.

Sanghir has sent legal notice to the U.S. Embassy through local court, which, claims that Sanghir \\\\\\\"suffered mental shock, financial loss, physical victimization, estrangement and religious victimization\\\\\\\" while in American custody at Guantanamo. He wants $10 million for mental out burst and another $400,000 for debts faced by his family while he was in detainees’ camp and damage to his business of sawmill.

Do you think his claim for US$ 10 Million is justified and he should be paid ?

Should all other detained prisoners at Guantanamo Bay have an access to lawyers ?
