Fu­ture of in­mates at Guan­tanamo prison un­cer­tain on an­niver­sary

Hawaii Tribune Herald - - PAGE TWO -

MI­AMI (AP) — The loom­ing pres­i­dency of Don­ald Trump has cre­ated a deep sense of un­cer­tainty for in­mates at Guan­tanamo on the 15th an­niver­sary of the ar­rival of the first pris­on­ers at the U.S. base in Cuba.

Nine­teen of the re­main­ing 55 pris­on­ers are cleared for re­lease and could be freed in the fi­nal days of Barack Obama’s pres­i­dency. But those left be­hind face the fu­ture un­der Trump, who said he wants to keep Guan­tanamo open and re­cently called on Obama to halt re­leases.
