MOSCOW, January 15 (Itar-Tass) —— The Russian Foreign Ministry is concerned about the Guantanamo prison situation.
“The prison had 779 non-POW inmates in the past decade, and approximately 600 of them were freed after having served a long time without indictment. Eight inmates died, and six were convicted by military commissions,” the ministry said. “A total of 171 inmates remain in the legal vacuum and are fully unaware of their future.”
“U.S. allies have been refusing to accept Guantanamo prisoners for the past year, referring to the lack of progress in the closure of the prison. That is an unprecedented situation in the modern history. Besides, about 3,000 prisoners are being kept in Afghanistan under similar conditions. That is a flagrant violation of international law by the United States,” the ministry said.
