Detainee Information – Guantanamo Bay

Detainee Information

Source of information: http://www.closeguantanamo.org/Prisoners

  • 779 prisoners have been held at Guantanamo since the prison opened on January 11, 2002.
  • Of those, 621 have been released or transferred to the US to be tried, and 9 have died, the most recent being Adnan Latif, in September 2012.
  • 89 of these prisoners have been released under President Obama, and although no prisoners were released for 15 months from January 2011, 2 Uighur prisoners (Muslism’s from China’s Xinjiang province) were released in April 2012.
  • Another man, Ibrahim al-Qosi, who was given a two-year sentence after a plea deal in July 2010, was released in July 2012
  • In September 2012, Omar Khadr, a former child prisoner, was transferred to Canada to serve the rest of the sentence he negotiated as part of a plea deal in October 2010.
  • 148 prisoners now remain in Guantanamo, although it is important to remember that 75 of these men, like 11 of the 12 men released from August 2013 to March 2014, were cleared for release over four years ago by President Obama’s Guantanamo Review Task Force, and they are listed below.
  • The identities of 56 men cleared for release were made available in a document released by the Department of Justice in a court case in September 2012, and this information is also included.
  • The numbers before the men’s names are their ISN numbers, (the “Internment Security Numbers” by which they are identified in Guantanamo) This is used to dehumanize the individuals in order to strip identity.

– For 26 of these men, the problem has been that they are Yemenis, and disgracefully, after a Nigerian named Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, recruited in Yemen, tried and failed to blow up a plane bound for Detroit with a bomb in his underwear on Christmas Day 2009, President Obama responded to a wave of hysteria by announcing a moratorium on releasing any cleared Yemenis from Guantanamo, which was meant to be a temporary measure, but which still stands nearly three years later.

I have ordered the report so it can be easier understood within the installation.

Represented by lawyers at the London based legal action charity Reprieve. The 44 year old Moroccan, an eloquent man whose long detention has seen him persistently marked out as a model prisoner, had been in Afghanistan with his wife, working on the outskirts of Kabul for a charity that helped many of the young Moroccans who had left their homelans, either because of persecution or because of lack of opportunities. As his lawyers at Reprieve have explained, “Younous has consistently been one of the most cooperative, peaceful prisoners at the base; he says he bears Americans no ill-will. His greatest wish is to be reunited with his wife and continue with the quiet life that was interrupted by America’s ‘War on Terror”
