Britain's last Guantanamo Bay inmate set for £1 MILLION compensation

BRITAIN'S last Guantanamo Bay inmate Shaker Aamer is in line for a taxpayer funded compensation package of at least £1 MILLION, it emerged today.

The 46-year-old will sue the British government and security services for their alleged complicity in his incarceration, which led to him spending 13 years behind bars without trial. 
Mr Aamer finally set foot back on British soil yesterday and was expected to be reunited with his family, including his teenage son he has never met. 
He was flown back to the UK from Cuba in a private jet - a flight which is believed to have cost taxpayers around £70,000. 
The father-of-four spent much of his time at Guantanamo on hunger strike, and he is currently understood to be receiving medical treatment at a Harley Street clinic. 
It is believed that he wants to expose the role that he says the British government played in his incarceration. 
There have been allegations that officers from MI6 were present when he was beaten up and brutally interrogated by US soldiers shortly after being captured in Afghanistan.
