Guantanamo Bay Attorneys

Guantanamo Bay Attorneys

The Center for Constitutional Rights has coordinated efforts by American lawyers to handle the habeas corpus, and other legal appeals, of several hundred of the Guantanamo detainees.

Only American lawyers have been allowed to visit detainees at the Guantanamo Bay detention camps, in Cuba. They have to go through security screening first. And they must agree that they can't speak from the notes they took during their meetings with their clients until they have been cleared for release.

Famous quotes containing the words attorneys and/or bay:

    The attorneys defending a criminal are rarely artists enough to turn the beautiful ghastliness of his deed to his advantage.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    The seagull’s wings shall dip and pivot him,
    Shedding white rings of tumult, building high
    Over the chained bay waters Liberty—
    Then, with inviolate curve, forsake our eyes
    Hart Crane (1899–1932)
