20 años de detención en Bahía de Guantánamo
January 6, 2022 - Estados Unidos llevó 20 prisioneros a la Base Naval de EUA en Guantánamo en 2002, y agregó unos 760 en los años siguientes. Al acercarse el 20º aniversario, quedan solo 39 prisioneros en la instalación.
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.
