The US administration may be considering allowing military commission trials of Guantánamo detainees to resume after a 120-day suspension in proceedings which is due to expire on 20 May 2009. Amnesty International continues to oppose trials under the Military Commissions Act (MCA). Any trials of Guantánamo detainees should be conducted before US federal civilian courts in trials that meet international standards. The administration should not seek the death penalty in any case.
