The UAE occupation forces has transferred 12 Yemeni former inmates of the US torture camp of Guantanamo Bay, to al-Mukalla airport in Hadhramaut province.
The American Center for Justice announced the arrival of the detainees returning from Guantanamo on an Emirati plane to Mukalla Airport, where they are expected to be released.
In a brief statement, the center welcomed the UAE’s release of these detainees, who were transferred from Guantanamo five years ago to prisons in the UAE, as part of an initiative by the former US president to close the notorious prison located in US-occupied territory on Cuba.
The statement called on the Saudi-led Hadi government “to take care of the detainees and provide them with safe shelter, job opportunities and the requirements of a decent life.”
In 2015, the UAE transferred 18 Yemeni detainees from the American prison and received them based on an agreement with the US government to “rehabilitate” them.
