'Give me an injection and I will be dead'

PUBLISHED May 5, 2004

The effects of the legal limbo in which Mahmoud Abu Rideh is trapped are visible on his arms. For 22 months, he has been locked up, without charge or trial, in Broadmoor high security hospital under controversial anti-terror laws.

The Palestinian has not been told the evidence against him and does not know when, if ever, he will be released.
His doctors say that his mental health problems do not warrant being held at Broadmoor, but the home secretary refuses to move him to a lower grade psychiatric hospital.
