My Story - Tale of a Terrorist Who

Author(s): HABIB Mamdouh


On 2 October, 2001, Mamdouh Habib and two young German men were taken off a bus travelling between Quetta and Karachi by Pakistani security officers. The Pakistanis, at the behest of the Americans, were rounding up anyone who in any way looked suspicious, interrogating them and passing them on to the Americans. The unlucky ones were then 'rendered' to a third-party country to be further interrogated and tortured, where they either disappeared for good or were sent to Guantanamo Bay, branded as terrorists with no legal rights. This is what happened to Mamdouh Habib. It took nearly three-and-a-half years before he was eventually released without charge from Guantanamo and reunited with his wife in Australia. The true story of the kidnapping and incarceration of Habib, first in Egypt then in Guantanamo, is told here by him for the first time. The complicity of the Australian government in his abduction to Egypt is revealed, and its subsequent neglect of him while in Guantanamo.
