The US administration is committed to closing the Guantánamo detention facility by 22 January 2010. However, the future remains uncertain for the detainees still held there as the executive review of their cases and of US detention policy ordered by the President gets underway. Amnesty International considers it unacceptable that any Guantánamo detainee continues to be held without charge or trial, and calls for each detainee to be either charged with a recognisable criminal offence for trial under fair procedures in existing federal courts or released immediately.
