Guantanamo inmates to arrive in Belgium this summer
The first liberated detainees from Guantanamo prison could arrive in the country at the end of the month or at the beginning of September.
Technical groups set up by the government have been studying each case, dossier by dossier, in direct consultation with American authorities.
These are inmates who have not been charged and must be liberated, but cannot return to their native countries for humanitarian reasons, say government sources cited in De Morgen. Those coming from Uyghur regions, Yemen, Uzbekistan and Egypt are particularly in danger.
Belgium has agreed with the United States to take a few of the fifty inmates being liberated from the prison, whilst 190 others will appear in front of a military tribunal in America.
