I tre di Tipton - post in sospeso

[Ho tenuto questo post in sospeso per un paio di giorni perché pensavo che la notizia circolasse e fosse smentita o confermata. In seguito Craig Murray ha dichiarato che le sue fonti sono le persone che erano presenti ai fatti, e che la vicenda gli è stata riferita nell'ufficio di Winterbottom. A questo punto, visto che il racconto risulta essere di prima mano e vero, ecco il post]

Del film di Michael Winterbottom si è sentito parlare, nei giorni scorsi: The Road to Guantanamo racconta la storia vera di Shafiq Rasul, Asif Iqbal e Ruhal Ahmed, tre amici musulmani di Tipton, nelle West Midlands (sarebbero diventati noti come "i tre di Tipton"), che partirono per andare a un matrimonio in Pakistan, finirono catturati dalle forze statunitensi in Afghanistan e infine portati a Guantanamo, dove trascorsero due anni di carcere e furono sottoposti a un trattamento brutale e umiliante.
Prolungati interrogatori stabilirono che non avevano alcun collegamento con al Qaeda, e furono rilasciati nonostante i loro appelli fossero stati ignorati dalle autorità del Regno Unito. I mezzi d'informazione britannici trasmisero in diretta il rimpatrio di questi "sospetti terroristi", che furono immediatamente prelevati dalla polizia e nuovamente sottoposti a interrogatorio. La stampa praticamente ignorò il loro successivo rilascio, ma anche la polizia britannica riuscì a stabilire che non avevano niente a che fare con il terrorismo.

La scorsa settimana il regista Michael Winterbottom, accompagnato dai tre ex-detenuti e dal cast, ha presentato il suo film al Festival del Cinema di Berlino.
Al ritorno in patria i tre di Tipton sono stati nuovamente arrestati e trattenuti per ore dalla Sezione Speciale in base alla legge britannica per la prevenzione del terrorismo: è stato loro chiesto dove fossero stati e chi avessero incontrato. Sono inoltre state fatte delle domande sulla politica del regista.
E non è finita.
Facevano parte del gruppo anche i tre attori - estranei ad affiliazioni politiche o religiose, ma di origini asiatiche - che interpretano gli ex-detenuti nel film: arrestati e interrogati anche loro, per ore.

I tre di Tipton sono innocenti. Sono stati due anni a Guantanamo, da innocenti.
E anche gli attori che li interpretano sono innocenti. E forse il film non è nemmeno un gran film.

Di fronte a una storia così preferirei credere che Craig Murray si fa un bicchierino, di tanto in tanto.
