USA: Concern for mental health of Guantánamo detainee held since he was 17 years old

By Amnesty International, , Index number: AMR 51/070/2009

Amnesty International is seriously concerned for the health and well-being of Guantánamo detainee Muhammed Khan Tumani. His lawyers have observed a marked deterioration in his mental health, which they attribute to his alleged ill-treatment since he was seized seven years ago when only 17 years old. Amnesty International urges the US government to ensure that all necessary steps are taken to expedite resolution of Muhammed Khan Tumani’s case in full compliance with international law, taking into account his age at the time of his original detention.
