20 anos do campo de detenção de Guantanamo Bay

January 6, 2022 - Desde que a prisão militar dos EUA em Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, abriu em 2002, estiveram ali detidas até 780 pessoas – a grande maioria sem acusação ou julgamento. Hoje, permanecem 39 detidos.

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.
