Question

Select the reasons why the Amnesty International persuaded the US government to shut down Guantanamo Bay?
  1. The military tortured the prisoners.
  2. Denial of human rights.
  3. Timely release of the prisoners.
  4. Excellent prison conditions.


Solution

The correct options are
A The military tortured the prisoners.
B Denial of human rights.
Amnesty International reported that the lives of the prisoners in Guantanamo Bay were miserable. Reports said that the US military inflicted torture through sensory deprivation, sleep deprivation, and isolation. They were not released even after they had been declared ‘not guilty’. Prison inmates had gone on hunger strikes to protest against the conditions in prison.
