Guantanamo is a prison in the city of Guantanamo in Cuba but it’s controlled by USA. It's belong to USA due to a treaty called Platt Amendment (1903). It was signed between USA and Cuba that attempted to protect Cuba's independence from foreign intervention. It permited Usa involvement in Cuba international and domestican affairs for the enforcement of Cuba independence.
It’s controlled by military jurisdiction. It’s one of the most terrible prisons in the world. Guantanamo prison have alleged terrorists. Any terristorist has been judgeg yet and some of them are there since 2001 Many prisioners go to their originary country to be judged. All the prisioners of Guantanamo has been accussed of being members of Al Qaeda but it's a mistery because many of them haven't been judge yet, they are innocent until guilty is proven and in the past, there was a spanish terrorist there. In Guantanamo, there are some laws that are different as in USA. In guantanamo, the children could go to the prison whereas in the United States the chidren couldn't go to the prison. For me, it's very curious that for example, childrens could go to prison. I wouldn't like to be there, it has to be terrible !!
Hamed Abderrahman Ahmad (Also called Ahmad Abd al Rahman Ahmad) is a Spanish person born in Ceuta who was captured and arrested in Pakistan by Pakistani soldiers in 2001 during the intervention of United States in Afghanistan. He become prisoner of the United States and he entered in Guantanamo in 2002 until 2004. He was the first spanish prisoner in Guantanamo. He went to Spain and he was judged there and he was declared innocent.
Obama in his first year of goverment promised the closure of Guantanamo, but he didn't know how to reorganize the prisioners and he delayed the close of Guantanamo.
At present, many prisioners are following a hunger strike due to the their indefinite confinement, the tighter restrictions and intrusive searches of their Qurans for contraband.
