BAGHDAD / Sky Press
The British government faces a scandal caliber, with mounting doubts that the amount of £ 20 million was paid from the state treasury as compensation for Britaaan detainees at Guantanamo, perhaps eventually arrived to organize the closet Daesh.
The British media has received a shock when I discovered that the former Guantanamo detainee, Jamal al-Harith, 50, who earned a million pounds of taxpayers' money as compensation for the period of detention without trial, blew himself up in a suicide attack in Iraq under the banner of Daesh.
And benefited 17 detainees at Guantanamo former British compensation, but what really worried, that four of those accused of being linked to one degree or another organization, as quoted by the newspaper "Daily Telegraph".
According to security information that one of them went on a trip to Portugal with the extreme "Jihadi John" infamous slaughter of hostages, after a year of receiving compensation, while another met with three of his relatives are fighting in Syria.
Said Lord Carlile Kyosei, an observer, former anti-terrorism laws in Britain, the Daily Telegraph that he hoped that the authorities thoroughly investigate the incident Harith, expressing concern that the huge sums paid as compensation to those persons did not reach the extremist groups.
The prime former British counter-terrorism office, Chris Phillips, his belief that the compensation received by Harith nicknamed "Britain's Abu Zakaria" eventually went to Daesh. "The British taxpayer financed terrorism effectively."
And the impact of the scandal seemed clear when the prime minister refused to comment on questions about the compensation received Harith, justified it as a matter for the intelligence services.
But Prime Minister Trerza May also faces questions about the way in which he made his tiller to travel to Syria in 2014, and it is not clear whether the list to monitor terror suspects.
To add to the intensity of the embarrassment faced by politicians in London, former Prime Minister Tony Blair, who explained that the man did not receive compensation in the era of his government's comments, pointing out that the compensation deal was signed in 2010 by the Conservative government led by David Cameron.
But the deal to release al-Harith from Guantanamo in 2004, has after intense negotiations led by Blair, the British prime minister at the time.
After his release, Abu Zakaria managed to get financial compensation from the British government, as much as one million pounds, after he claimed that British agents were aware of the ill-treatment he had received at Guantanamo and some of them participated.
Any of the former British detainees in Guantanamo was not facing charges related to terrorism.
