Sanaa asks Washington to hand over Yemenis in Guantanamo, Bagram
SANAA, March 29 (KUNA) -- Yemen has asked the US government anew to hand over 90 Yemeni prisoners in Guantanamo detention facility in Cuba, and in Bagram, Afghanistan.
Yemeni foreign minister Abu Bakr Al-Qurbi sent a letter to US Secretary of State John Kerry asking him to extradite the 90 Yemeni detainees, official news agency (Saba) reported Friday.
Al-Qurbi said Yemen was keen on rehabilitating the prisoners before merging them in the society as good citizens.
"The closure of Guantanamo file will restore confidence in values of freedom and justice," he said.
Yemeni President Abdo Rabbu Mansour Hadi, during a meeting with US attorney general in Washington last September, said Yemen would build a special rehabilitation facility for the Yemeni prisoners.
Yemenis in Guantanamo have been on hunger strike since February and health of many of them worsened. (end) az.bs KUNA 292006 Mar 13NNNN
