USA: Close Guantanamo - ONLINE PETITION

Amnesty International, USA, 2-16-2021

The detention facility at Guantánamo continues to hold 40 Muslim men indefinitely, most without charge, and many of whom were tortured by the US government. None has received a fair trial. The treatment and imprisonment in Guantánamo are glaring human rights violations that the Biden administration must end now.

Toffiq al-Bihani is one of five detainees at Guantanamo who have been cleared for transfer to other countries for many years, yet remain imprisoned indefinitely.

He was tortured by the CIA before he was sent to Guantánamo in 2003, where he remains without charge or trial. He was cleared for transfer in 2010.
