MOSCOW, July 27. /TASS/. Russia’s Foreign Ministry is hopeful that Ravil Mingazov, a Russian national held at U.S. prison Guantanamo for nearly 14 years without facing any charges, will soon return to his home country, Russian Foreign Ministry’s Ombudsman for Human Rights, Democracy and the Rule of Law Konstantin Dolgov said aired by the Rossiya 24 TV on Wednesday.
"Better late than never. But who will be responsible for years-long violations of our citizen’s rights alongside other Guantanamo prisoners?" Dolgov said. "Certainly, we expect Mingazov to be released without any further delays."
"We hope he will be brought to Russia as soon as possible," he added.
On July 26, the Periodic Review Board, an interagency commission set up by the Obama administration, approved his release from the U.S. base.
