Gitmo-UK? British 'secret prison' holds up to 90 Afghans without charges (VIDEO)

British troops in Afghanistan are holding 80 to 90 people, some for as long as 14 months, without charging them.

Lawyers call it a 'secret prison' akin to Guantanamo Bay, but the government says the facility is operated legally.

UK Defence Secretary have previously said that transfering the prisoners could endanger troops and detainees themselves. British anti-war campaigner Jim Brann says the UK military has put itself between a rock and a hard place.

RT also spoke to Rosa Curling, a lawyer of one of the detainees, who said the government has repeatedly declined her access to her client.
