USA: Human rights must transcend party politics: Amnesty International welcomes Bermuda’s decision to accept four Guantánamo Uighurs, reiterates appeal to USA to do the right thing

, Index number: AMR 51/076/2009

On 11 June 2009 four Uighur detainees held without charge or trial in Guantánamo Bay since 2002 were transferred to Bermuda. Amnesty International welcomes Bermuda’s acceptance of these four men, as it brings an end to their unlawful detention and offers them the chance to begin to rebuild their lives. It calls on all parties with interest or influence over this situation not to jeopardize the human rights of these men or their ability to get on with their future, until now put on hold.
