20 عاماً من الاعتقال في غوانتانامو

January 6, 2022 - منذ افتتاح السجن العسكري الأميركي في خليج غوانتانامو بكوبا عام 2002، تم احتجاز ما يصل إلى 780 شخصاً فيه - أغلبهم من دون تهمة أو محاكمة. اليوم، لا يزال هناك 39 معتقلا.

U.S. President Joe Biden wants to close the infamous prison, but faces Republican resistance and also procedural barriers.

Established during the presidency of George W. Bush, the offshore jail was meant to hold suspected al-Qaeda members, captured during the invasion of Afghanistan in 2001.

To date, of the 780 detainees, 732 have been released without charge, many after being detained for more than a decade without legal means to challenge their detentions.
