Three Guantanamo Detainees In Slovakia Reported To Be On A Hunger-Strike

Posted by Info on 26/06/2010

Slovak authorities are currently deciding on what legal status the three detainees will be granted.

Three former detainees from Guantanamo Bay (Gitmo) who were transferred to Slovakia on January 25 are on a hunger strike, Branislav Tichý, the director of Amnesty International Slovensko said the three are protesting bad conditions and the treatment they are receiving from Slovak authorities in a detention facility Tichý described their living conditions as poor – having only beds and a sink at their disposal and being allowed to leave their rooms for only an hour per day.

The three, who arrived in Slovakia in January, are frustrated because they are isolated under “condition similar to Guantanamo” in the camp for foreigners in western Slovakia.
