[JURIST] The UK government has informed at least two of the four British men [BBC News profile] recently released [JURIST report] from Guantanamo Bay that they cannot obtain passports. An attorney for Martin Mubanga and Feroz Abbasi said that both had received a letter from the government informing them that they would not be issue passports due to evidence against them provided by the US. It was unknown whether the passports of the other two former detainees, Richard Belmar and Moazzam Begg, have also been revoked. The government has the power to withdraw citizen's passports from the Royal Prerogative [Wikipedia article]. The recent announcement is only the 13th time the power has been since 1947 and the first in more than 25 years. BBC News has more.
