Saber Lahmer is one of the six  'Bosnian Arabs' who were quite literally kidnapped by US agents from outside a Sarajevo courthouse where they had just been acquitted of terrorism related charges. What followed next was a horrifying ordeal in the Kafkaesque story that is Guantanamo. After being held without charge for over eight years Saber Lahmer was eventually released and resettled in France.

Cageprisoners Director Moazzam Begg met up with him at a conference in Paris to mark the ninth anniversary since the opening of the US prison in Cuba. The following is a transcript of the interview conducted between the two.
