Officials at the Guantanamo Bay prison complex in Cuba tried to trick Mauritanian detainee Mohamedou Ould Slahi into cooperating by forging a letter from his mother who couldn’t even write, his brother Yahdih, has said.

Speaking at a jointly organized event marking the publication of Slahi’s memoir, “Guantanamo Diary,” Yahdih said that authorities at the prison forged the letter as a ploy to persuade him into cooperating with his interrogators, the Guardian reported.

The event had been organized by the Guardian, the PEN writers’ association and Canongate, the publisher of “Guantanamo Diary.”
