GUANTANAMO 'A LIVING GRAVE' FOR DOZEN CLEARED TO LEAVE

 
WASHINGTON, USA - Some 79 of the 149 prisoners still incarcerated at the US military base in Guantanamo Bay, southern Cuba, have been approved for transfer after being assessed as posing no security risk to the United States.
Most of them were told as long ago as 2009 or 2010 that they would face no charges and were now eligible to be either sent home or to a third host nation. Yet they are still waiting.
After more than a decade held without charge, dozens of Guantanamo detainees ought to have sight of freedom, but hard-won deals for their release are languishing awaiting a final Pentagon signature.
In recent months US officials have nailed down deals which could see the fairly swift release of a couple of dozen detainees from different countries, administration sources confirmed to AFP, declining to go into any detail.
In June, a senior official had predicted there would be "substantial progress" this year towards President Barack Obama's avowed aim of closing the costly and politically toxic operation.
But so far this year only one prisoner approved for release has been freed, and there is a growing sense of frustration.
