Guantanamo Report

NZ human rights lawyer, Paul Hunt, is one of the authors of a new UN report on the US-run detention camp at Guantanamo Bay, which calls for a dramatic improvement in its conditions if not its closure. The UN team was denied access to prisoners by the US. “It would have been a dereliction of duty if we’d closed our eyes to Guantanamo Bay,” says Hunt. “[The team] is really disappointed that the US declined to invite us to Guantanamo Bay to interview the detainees.” The report, described by US Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld as “just flat wrong,” has received support from the European Parliament and numerous human rights organisations.
