Ex Gitmo detainee Bin Atef marries in Ghana

  |   Ghana News

It has emerged that one of the two ex-Guantanmo Bay detainees being hosted by Ghana, has gotten married during his short stay in the country. Bin Atef’s wife, Haia, is a Yemeni national, and they have been married for about two and a half months.

The marriage is said to have been contracted after the erstwhile John Mahama administration accepted to host him in January 2016, alongside Khalid Al-Dhuby. Asked whether the marriage was contracted while he was in Ghana, George Clarke who has been lawyer for Bin Atef since 2015, said : “I think it was contracted while he was in Ghana, but I don’t believe the woman is from Ghana.”

“He is already married, but I don’t think it is to anybody in Ghana. He did get married after he got out of Guantanamo, but I don’t know the details of that,” Mr. Clarke added. Umaru Sanda Amadu on Friday, Mr. Clarke also said his client wants to have his full freedom of movement in the country and be able to work as well.
