In November 2010, the Government secured a mediated without prejudice settlement of the civil damages claims brought by detainees held at Guantanamo Bay (Official Report col. 752).

The details of that settlement were made subject to a legally binding confidentiality agreement. We are therefore unable to confirm the terms of that settlement agreement, including the number of individuals involved, their nationalities, or the level of payments made.
