#GuantanamoBay #TheMauritanian #CIA The Mauritanian: The Innocent Man Locked Up in Guantanamo Bay Prison for 14 Years


On this episode of Going Underground, we speak to Kevin Macdonald, Oscar-winning Director of the film ‘The Mauritanian’ and Nancy Hollander, attorney at FBD Law and the lawyer of Mohamedou Ould Slahi, the man the film is based on. Mohamedou Ould Slahi was held in the infamous Guantanamo Bay prison camp without charge from 2002 until 2016. The interview covers the many tragedies that occurred since he became a target for the United States, including CIA-backed torture via the notorious ‘extraordinary rendition program’, many episodes of torture in Guantanamo Bay, the Obama Administration’s battle to keep Ould Slahi in Guantanamo Bay, despite the fact they had no charges against him, pressure against Nancy for being his Ould Slahi’s lawyer and much more. #GuantanamoBay #TheMauritanian #CIA LIKE Going Underground FOLLOW Going Underground SUBSCRIBE to Going Underground FOLLOW Afshin Rattansi FOLLOW on Instagram
