Union calls for beds to reopen at time of release, pending review of detainee
UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay visited the detention center in Tripoli to hear from family members of some Guantanamo Bay detainees at the facility.
Pillay was in the city as part of a regional conference that is looking to secure a full-time staff of 20 to 22 people in Tripoli’s capital. She arrived in Tripoli on Thursday morning for a two-day visit.
Pillay met with a representative of the Libyan government and with the families of 11 detainees. A government spokesman also addressed the press in Tripoli.
“I’ve never seen a situation like this in my life in terms of international and other governments doing their part to try to find a solution,” Pillay said.
Pillay met with five members of Congress during her three-day visit, one of whom is the chairwoman of the U.S. Senate Committee on Veterans Affairs.
Pillay is also scheduled to meet with several senior State Department officials during her visit.
The United Nations High Commissioner for Human 우리카지노Rights (UN HRC) has said that as of now all the detainees have already been released from Guantanamo. Pillay confirmed that the United States has given up on bringing all detainees to Libya to be returned to their home countries, according to a UN statement released Friday morning.
Some members of the committee are still undecided whether any detainees can be released, Pillay said in an interview with the New York Times.
“There is nothing in the U.S. Constitution that would prevent an action at the highest levels of this administration by the President to bring them back if the administration was willing to바카라사이트 negotiate a solution to this problem at the same time that this policy is announced,” Pillay told the newspaper.
On Monday, the U.바카라S. military acknowledged it might be necessary to bring some detainees out of Guantanamo, including al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, and said it will review the policy in light of the report. It said the U.S. is already taking steps to return them.
