A CAMPAIGN to free a former Huddersfield University student held at Guantanamo Bay reaches the High Court next week.
A judicial review due to start on Wednesday will decide whether to order the Foreign Office to help Omar Deghayes and two other detainees at the US naval base in Cuba.
Mr Deghayes, 37, has been held for three years in solitary confinement without trial.
He was detained in Pakistan and his name was said to be on the FBI's "most wanted" list, but the photograph in his file was of a totally different person, campaigners say.
He is a long-term UK resident but Foreign Office officials have refused to help secure his release because he does not have British nationality.
Mr Deghayes joined a legal practice course at Huddersfield University in 1998 and then became a student in Brighton, East Sussex.
Roger Keely, from Huddersfield Stop the War Coalition, said: "He has been tortured by US guards and ignored by the British Government.
"It's a human rights outrage and a terrible comment on the way things have moved under the cover of the anti-terrorism drive.
"He and other detainees should be charged and given a fair trial or released."
Civil rights lawyer Gareth Peirce, whose work secured the release of the Birmingham Six, has taken up the case.
Mr Deghayes was granted refugee status in the UK after fleeing Libya with his family in the 1980s when his father was assassinated.
His sister Amani spoke at a public meeting in Huddersfield last year.
Dossiers on the case were presented to Tony Blair in February, but the Prime Minister referred the case back to the Foreign Office.
