The play Guantanamo Boy, which is currently on tour, was performed to a capacity audience at Middle Temple on 17 November 2013. This special production was followed by a a lively debate chaired by Tim Otty QC. The author on whose book the play is based, Anna Perera, and a former Guantanamo Bay detainee's sister, Amani Deghayes, were on the panel. Amani was very compelling and moving on the impact of such detention on the detainee’s family, and Tim Otty QC spoke eloquently about some of the legal issues raised in the course of this type of litigation.
