Tabled 09 January 2018
2017-19 Session
That this House notes that 11 January 2018 marks the 16th anniversary of the opening of the Guantánamo Bay Prison Camp; further notes that 41 men remain imprisoned at the camp, including five men who were approved for release by the previous US Administration; notes that over half of the detainees have not been charged for any wrongdoing; agrees that all detainees have been denied a fair trial; believes that the five men approved for release should see that decision upheld immediately; further believes that the remaining detainees should have their full human rights restored and that all options, including their release to other countries, should be explored; and urges the Government to make representations to President Trump to finally issue an executive order to close Guantánamo Bay.
