, Index number: AMR 51/184/2002

More than 600 people are held in United States (US) military custody at the US naval base at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, and elsewhere without charge or trial or access to the courts, lawyers or relatives. Most of the detainees - who are believed to be nationals of more than 40 countries - have been held in US custody for many months with no indication of when or if they will be released.
