A once-secret unit inside the Guantanamo Bay detainment place that had fallen into deterioration has been shut and the prisoners moved to another office on the American base in Cuba, the U.S. military said Sunday.
The prisoners at Camp 7 were moved to an office adjoining where different prisoners on the base are held as a feature of what U.S. Southern Command said in a proclamation was a work to “increment operational productivity and adequacy.”
Miami-based Southern Command, which regulates the confinement community at the southeastern edge of Cuba, didn’t say the number of prisoners were moved. Officials have recently said around 14 men were held in Camp 7. There are 40 prisoners at Guantanamo.
Southern Command said the Camp 7 prisoners were moved to Camp 5 “securely and without episode,” yet didn’t say when the exchange happened. Camp 5, which was generally unfilled, is close to Camp 6, where different prisoners are held.
Camp 7 opened in December 2006 for prisoners recently held in an organization of surreptitious CIA detainment offices, regularly alluded to as “dark destinations,” where they were exposed to ruthless cross examination strategies. The military ran it under a concurrence with CIA, and Southern Command said insight offices were associated with the exchange.
The military since quite a while ago would not recognize the location of Camp 7 on the base and has never permitted journalists to see within the office. Officials had said that unit, which was never intended to be perpetual, had primary issues and should have been supplanted, yet the Pentagon dropped plans to look for money for the development.
Among those held at Camp 7 were the five prisoners accused of war wrongdoings for their supposed jobs arranging and offering strategic help for the Sept. 11, 2001, psychological militant assaults.
President Joe Biden has said he means to close Guantanamo, however that would require endorsement from Congress to move a few prisoners to the U.S. for preliminary or imprisonment.
