UN rights experts to investigate situation of detainees in Guantánamo Bay

Following repeated and unsuccessful requests over the past three years to visit persons arrested, detained or tried on grounds of terrorism in Iraq, Afghanistan or in the detention centre at Guantánamo Bay, four UN experts again expressed concerns about the situation of the detainees. Due to the seriousness of the allegations and the lack of cooperation of the US Government, the experts decided jointly to conduct an investigation into the Guantánamo detainees based on all credible sources.
