This article by Jonathan Cook clearly explains what lies behind Craig Murray’s imprisonment. It should not make any difference to the strength of his piece, but I would like to add that I have known Craig since we met when he travelled the country speaking for the anti-war movement after he had been sacked by Blair and Straw as UK Ambassador to Uzbekistan.
I recommend his book “Murder in Samarkand” which explains his experiences in some detail. Thank you Craig for doing the job that has been neglected by so many of those who call themselves ‘journalists’.
I will never forget how he travelled to London for the launch of my book and contributed the best and funniest speech of the evening.
Solidarity with Craig Murray.
