Title : PRISONERS IN GUANTANAMO
Subject : TORTURE

 

More than 600 people have been kept and interrogated for more than a year and a half at the american base in Guantanamo in Cuba because they are suspected Al Qaeda members. Even though most of them were arrested during the war on terror, they are not considered prisoners of war and are therefore not protected by the Geneva convention. they do not face specific charges, and they do not even know if, where, and when they're going to de trialled.

Clive Stanford Smith, attorney for two of the Guantanamo prisoners, tells Stelio Kouloglou that he isn't allowed access to law briefs, nor contact with his clients, who have no idea that they're being represented by an attorney. Also, this program features testimonys of afgani prisoners that were released from Guantanamo and exclusive images filmed by a BBC crew that approached the base.
