Actors Corin and Vanessa Redgrave want a British detainee at Guantanamo Bay to stand for a Parliamentary seat.
Moazzam Begg, 36, from Birmingham, was arrested in Pakistan and has been held as a terror suspect at the US military base in Cuba since January 2002.
The Redgraves want Mr Begg to stand for their Peace and Progress Party.
His father Azmat said the matter was “under consideration”, adding: “I don’t know if he is mentally prepared or it’s reasonable for him to stand.”…
The foreign secretary said Mr Begg will be handed over to the police in the UK once he arrives here.
