GUANTANAMO BAY PRISON CAMP
Behind the Bars of Gunatanimo Bay
At present there are Australians, Britons and Kuwaitis among the many others who are being held in the legal limbo no-mans-land of Guantanamo Bay Prison Camp.

At present there are Australians, Britons and at least 12 Kuwaitis among the many others who are being held in the legal limbo no-mans-land of Guantanamo Bay Prison Camp [CUBA]. The detainees have been accused of terrorist-related activity.

The US government deemed Cuba the most secure environment for their detainment, interrogation and trial. As long as the prisoners are not on US soil they are denied the rights guaranteed to criminals under the American constitution, such as a presumption of innocence and a trial by jury.

What is the status of the detainees under international law?

The US insists that the detainees do not qualify for prisoner-of-war treatment under the Geneva Conventions, because they are not members of the regular Afghan armed force - nor do they meet the criteria for prisoner-of-war status for voluntary forces.

These criteria include wearing uniform and carrying arms openly. Washington has categorized the detainees as "unlawful combatants".

United Nations argue that the armed conflict in Afghanistan is of an international nature and the law of international armed conflict, the Geneva Conventions, should apply.

What does the legal argument mean for the detainees?

If the alleged al-Qaeda and Taliban members are not legally prisoners of war, then they are not entitled to various protections provided by the Geneva Conventions. These protections include certain restrictions on the interrogation of prisoners, the prohibition of cruel and degrading treatment, and a ban on torture.

Amnesty International have reported: In the name of internal security, governments have indicated that they would infringe on basic rights of citizens under the special circumstances of global terror threat. Laws have been enacted in various countries that violate Universal Human Rights. Amnesty says these laws are being abused. Amnesty was particularly critical about over 600 prisoners detained for over 18 months in the Guantanamo Bay prison camp.

Names of the Detained in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba

Inside Guantánamo Bay
Human rights lawyer Clive Stafford-Smith talks to AI about his experiences inside the notorious US detention centre at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba

I went to Guantánamo for the first time in November [2004] and I’ve been back four times now. You’re never quite sure whether to laugh or cry when you’re there. The soldiers go around saluting each other saying, "Honour bound, sir," and the other says, "To defend freedom".

I think if you’d been asking two years ago, would we be closing Guantánamo, it wouldn’t have been on the radar screen. Now Guantánamo is in its death throes, but of course, it’s always been a distraction from the real issues. And the real issues are if you’ve got 520 people in Guantánamo, there are probably another 12,000 folk who are being held in US detention centres around the world and being abused there. The bigger problem is, what’s the substitute? Unfortunately, I think, the US has plans to take a lot of prisoners away from Guantánamo to Bagram airforce base and beyond. We have to start thinking beyond Guantánamo Bay to all the other detention centres and American proxy prisons around the world.

  • Guantanamo Bay: The testimony
    Guantanamo Bay
    It could take weeks for the documents to be fully analysed
    The US defence department has for the first time put the names of detainees to transcripts of tribunals at Guantanamo Bay.

    But the 6,000 pages of documents released under the Freedom of Information Act do not always name the person attending the tribunal. Many as listed as "detainee".

    It is not always clear who has been released and who is still held and it could take weeks for the documents to be fully analysed.

    Here is some of the named evidence given at hearings:

  • Australian David Hicks
    AUSTRALIAN David Hicks could remain in Guantanamo Bay forever, even if cleared by a US military tribunal.

    Adelaide-born Hicks will be among the first six Guantanamo Bay detainees to face a US military commission. The 27-year-old was captured fighting for the Taliban in Afghanistan in November 2001. He has not been charged and no date has been set for his hearing before the tribunal, which has powers including the death penalty. His American lawyer says there is no evidence to support Prime Minister John Howard's assertion that David Hicks had admitted training with the al-Qaeda terrorist network. David Hicks has been held 19 months, interrogated at will in a six foot by eight foot cell, no contact with the outside world, no counsel.

    "Literally, that is the (US) government's position, that David andeverybody else can be held indefinitely and that the war on terrorism is open ended.

    http://www.fairgofordavid.org
    Fair Go for David seeks that:
    David Hicks is treated in accordance with the Geneva Conventions. The law of Habeas Corpus be applied to David Hicks and that he be repatriated to Australia and given a fair civil trial, if charged with any crime/s; and that any other Australians in a similar situation to David Hicks be entitled to the same rights

    David Hicks receives support from Australian Democrats [Govt]
    Foreign Prisoner Support Service would like to announce that the Australian Democrats have launched a petition calling for the Guantanamo Bay military facility to be closed and highlighting the injustice faced by South Australian citizen David Hicks.

    "David Hicks has languished in the Guantanamo gulag for four years and still has no real prospect of receiving a fair trial," Democrats' Foreign Affairs Spokesperson Senator Natasha Stott Despoja said.

    "The continuing incarceration of David Hicks is a disgrace for the United States Government and the Australian Government. Guantanamo Bay is saturated with breaches of international law and the facility must be shut down."

  • FAIR GO FOR DAVID

  • David Hicks, an Australian citizen has been held at Guantanamo Bay for more than three years. He has been denied his human and legal rights under the Geneva Conventions, the Torture Convention and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

  • Neither the Australian government nor the US government has alleged that David is a member of al Qaeda yet he has been denied his most fundamental right – the presumption of innocence.

  • The military commission set up to try David falls far short of accepted standards for any judicial proceedings including those under the US justice system, US court martials and the Australian justice system.

  • David has not engaged in any attack or conspired to engage in any attack against US forces or installations, as he was held prisoner by members of the Northern Alliance in Afghanistan prior to the US invasion of that country in 2002. The contention that David is an “unlawful combatant” is a contrived legal nonsense, all the more that he has never engaged in hostilities against US forces.

  • The Australian government has taken no material steps to protect the legal and human rights of one of its own citizens and seems content to wait for the US government to determine his fate: this notwithstanding the strong actions taken by governments of other countries, including Great Britain, to secure the release and return of their nationals previously held under identical circumstances.
  • The Australian government has ignored calls from eminent jurists around the world, calling for the release of detainees from Guantanamo Bay and condemning their treatment at the hands of the US administration, in contravention of international law.

  • Recently, the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe passed a resolution condemning the US administration for the torture of detainees at Guantanamo Bay and calling on all member states not to cooperate in the interrogation of US detainees or in the rendition of suspects to US custody.

  • In addition, the resolution called on the US administration to cease its practice of ‘secret detentions’ and to initiate an independent investigation of the hundreds of allegations of torture and ‘cruel, inhuman and degrading’ treatment being meted out against detainees at Guantanamo Bay.

    You can call your local talkback radio station to discuss this matter and/or also write to your federal Member of Parliament about this. Ask your federal MP to send a copy of your letter to Phillip Ruddock, Attorney General, Alexander Downer, Foreign Affairs and John Howard, Prime Minister.

    Send letters to Parliament House, CANBERRA, ACT, 2600.

  • PRISONERS IN GUANTANAMO
    A senior Defense Department official has stated that at least one-third of the prisoners at Guantanamo are completely innocent of any wrongdoing.

    Tragically, many of the prisoners had put themselves in harms way to fulfill a sacred religious duty. Islam ordains charitable work. Many of these men are teachers. They are pious men bound by a great tradition to make sacrifices on behalf of other human beings

  • Fawzi Khaled Abdullah Fahad Al Odah -- is a 25 year-old teacher who once spent his summers traveling in poor nations to educate less fortunate students. Fawzi and his family have built libraries and wells in Africa. They’ve sponsored orphans in countries like Albania. After September 11th, Fawzi decided to remain in the Afghanistan-Pakistan region to help the flood of refugees. His family soon lost contact and did not learn that he had been taken prisoner until January 2002, when they heard he was being held by the U.S. Fawzi has no weapons training or experience. On May 7, 2002, Fawzi sent his parents a letter saying, “Now I am detained by the American forces and investigations are still going on…I will be established as innocent soon, and then I will return back to you…” Fawzi’s father, Khalid Al-Odah, is the head of the Kuwaiti Family Committee, an organization formed by relatives of the detainees to advocate for their just treatment under the U.S. judicial system. The elder Al-Odah is a former member of the Kuwaiti Air Force, who trained with American servicemen in the United States and flew missions with them as an ally in the Persian Gulf War of 1991.
    Omar Rajab Mohammad Rajab Amin -- is an agricultural supervisor for the Care Houses department of the Kuwaiti Ministry of Social Affairs and Labor. In 1993 he began working for Kuwait’s Combined Relief Committee, assisting refugees in Bosnia-Herzegovina. He married a Bosnian woman in 1994, returning to Kuwait in 1998 where he lived happily with his wife and four children. When the refugee situation arose in Pakistan and Afghanistan in the fall of 2001, Omar collected money and took a short leave of absence from work to assist the refugees. He intended to return to Kuwait quickly as his five-year old son was scheduled for a heart operation. He had never been to Afghanistan or Pakistan before, and most likely tried to flee with the other refugee workers when the violence erupted. Meanwhile, his son was operated on successfully and his wife was pregnant with their fifth child. In a Red Cross letter he wrote from Guantanamo, he says, “My dear wife, I pray that you are well and in good health and I hope that you will receive this message after you have safely given birth to the newly born baby…Please be advised that my imprisonment will not be for long. I have always done good for those who are in distress.”
    Fouad Mahmoud Al Rabiah -- is an Aviation Engineer for Kuwaiti Airlines and a father of four children. He is an international graduate of Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University and was granted honorary citizenship by the Chamber of the Daytona Beach-Halifax area. He worked on a rescue campaign in Kosovo in 1988 as a Red Crescent humanitarian aid worker and in 2000 he delivered a consignment of medicine to Bangladesh for patients suffering from kidney disease. In 2001, he delivered more than 30 trucks of aid from Meshad, Iran to refugees on the Afghani-Iranian border and to hospitals in Kandahar. In a Red Cross letter he wrote, “As you know, I traveled to deliver rescue materials…the situation in this country turned upside down overnight, and now every Arab citizen has become a suspect.” The 44 year-old Fouad suffers from several serious health conditions.
    Nasser Nijer Naser al Mutairi -- is a 25 year-old teacher and minister who worked for the Ministry of Education in Kuwait. He left his home in October of 2000 in order to minister in the small mosques and schools of Afghanistan 's poorer regions. He is a member of the Tableeghi sect, an order of apolitical and peaceful missionaries. In October of 2002, the Kuwaiti Ministry of Foreign Affairs informed Nasser's family that he had taken ill and was in a hospital in Kandahar. It is not known why or how he was deported from the hospital to Guantanamo Bay. In fact, very little is known of his condition, other than that he has asked his parents to contact the Red Cross on his behalf.
    Khalid Abdullah Mishal al Mutairi -- was working at a primary school as a messenger and planned to return to school in 2001. His family has funded agricultural projects in Pakistan, bought farms for the poor in India, and supported an orphan girl in Bosnia. In 2001, Khalid traveled to Pakistan to help repair a mosque his family had funded. The last time his family spoke to him, he said he wanted to assist the Afghani refugees and that he would be home by December, 2001. It is not known why or how he ended up in detention in Guantanamo Bay.
    Abdullah Kamal Abdullah Kamal Al Kandari -- is a mechanical technician and father of four. In 2001, he traveled to the Afghani-Pakistani border to help in the refugee relief. The last time he spoke to his family in October of 2001, he told them that “all Arab citizens are wanted, whether they are warriors or members of relief agencies.” In a Red Cross letter, he wrote, “I would like news of my family, especially of my pregnant wife. Did she give birth yet? …I will be back soon, [it] is only a matter of time until they find me innocent and learn that I did not fight, but I came to help the poor and needy and that I was trapped in Afghanistan against my will…Please be advised that I do not know where I am, but the authorities say the state I am in is Cuba.”
    Abdulaziz Saver Owain al Shammari -- is a 30 year-old teacher and a father of two. He departed Kuwait for Pakistan in October, 2001 to start up an operation with local aid groups to help the refugees. He contacted his family, saying that the situation was unstable and that he would return home as soon as he had finished his mission. The next they heard from him was a Red Cross letter from Guantanamo. “Dear father,” he wrote, “I have informed them about everything relating to me and that I only went to Afghanistan to teach, and that I have nothing to do with the war. They said that they are going to verify these facts and, if they are true, they will release me. Every time, they say they are going to release me soon… “I have gone on a hunger strike for 27 days and I will continue the strike indefinitely. Further, I am not drinking water or speaking for four days until they set me free or take me to court for trial in order to obtain all my rights. Or I will die, as I can not stand life in this place.” Abdulaziz is believed to still be alive in the Camp Delta detention facility in Guantanamo Bay.
    Mohammed Fenaitel Mohamad Al Daihani -- was an auditor in the Kuwaiti Audit Bureau and a father of six children. In 1993, his family funded the building of a well in the Philippines and, the following year, he purchased a farm in Indonesia for a local orphan village to use for food. In 1995, he funded the construction of a mosque in the republic of Benin. On September 9, 2001, Mohammad left Kuwait to use the two remaining weeks of his annual leave to provide aid to the Afghan refugees settling on the border after fleeing the harsh conditions of life under the Taliban. After September 11th, he contacted his family to say that the borders had been closed and only women, children, and the elderly were being allowed to leave. He contacted them later, saying “I am currently detained by the American army. They know that I was in Afghanistan to dig water wells and that the borders were closed, so I could not get out of the country. Yet they are still investigating.” His family has no means of income while he is detained, and he worries about their suffering.
    Fayiz Mohammed Ahmed Al Kandari -- is a 27 year-old student who went to render aid in Afghanistan during his 2001 summer vacation. It was his belief that helping others might honor his grandmother, who had just died, and bring better health to his mother, who is suffering from cancer. After being captured by U.S. forces, he wrote in a message to his family that an American investigator had questioned him and found nothing against him, and he believed he would soon be freed. He wrote in a Red Cross letter, “If the construction of a mosque…or the digging of a well is the sin that makes me a detainee, then I willingly accept my detention.”
    Adil Zamil Abdull Mohssin Al Zamil -- worked in the Kuwaiti Public Authority for Housing Care, and is the father of 8 children. Since their father has been detained, they have had no means of income. Adil’s father is too ill to care for his grandchildren. It is believed that Adil was arrested in Pakistan at the end of February, 2002 by a group of Pakistani and U.S. personnel, though the reason for his arrest is not known.
    Saad Madai Saad Al-Azmi -- 24 traveled to Kabul, Afghanistan in July 2001 to supervise charitable projects, including the construction of mosques. After the bombing of Afghanistan began following September 11th, Saad left for Pakistan where he stayed for about a month. He then traveled to Lahore, Pakistan for several weeks, then on to Karachi in January in order to arrange transportation back home to Kuwait. For unknown reasons, he was detained in Pakistan and eventually was taken by the U.S. to Guantanamo.
    Abdullah Saleh Ali Al Ajmi -- is a 25 year-old lance corporal in the Kuwaiti army. He is a member of the apolitical Tableeghi sect. His family says that he decided to take a leave of absence from the army in order to “rescue the needy and the poor” in Pakistan. A month after he left Kuwait, he contacted his family to tell them that he was successfully carrying out aid work. The next his parents heard from him was a Red Cross postcard from Guantanamo.

    NOTE: Individuals should note that whilst the US government do allow mail from non-family members, all mail is subject to extreme delays as well as censors. Letters can be held for up to a year or longer, or that the detainees may never receive your letter. The US is believed to be clamping down on mail particularly, of late. However, letter-writing can be considered a protest action, as it sends a strong message to the US administration that the world has not forgotten the prisoners in Guantanamo, but rather is immensely concerned about what is occuring in Cuba.
