Letter to U.S. Senate on Indefinite Detention

As Congress considers Guantánamo-related provisions in the National Defense Authorization Act for FY 2017 (NDAA), the Bellevue/NYU Program for Survivors of Torture, the Center for Victims of Torture, and Physicians for Human Rights sent a letter to the U.S. Senate calling for an end to indefinite detention without charge or trial. We urge Congress to discontinue indefinite detention and ensure that Guantánamo detainees are safely repatriated, resettled in third countries, or transferred to the United States for prosecution before Article III courts, in accordance with due process and humane treatment standards under domestic and international law.
