USA: Abandon military commissions, close Guant�namo
For more than five years, Amnesty International has been calling for fair trials or release of the detainees held at the Guant�namo detention facility, while opposing the military commission systems proposed by the government. Since mid-2005, it has been calling for its closure and for any detainees who are to be charged to be brought to trial in the ordinary courts in the USA. This document includes a framework for an end to unlawful detentions which lists key points to be included in any strategy pursued by the US government.
