Yemen refuses extraditing Guantanamo detainees to third state

 Yemen Post Staff

The Yemeni government has officially demanded the United States to extradite about 80 Yemenis detained in Guantanamo bay, refusing to hand them over to a third state, diplomatic sources affirmed .
The sources said that Sana'a also demanded to hand over a body of Adnan Farhan Abdul-Latif who passed away inside the notorious detention.
Yemen's President Abdrabu Mansour Hadi has discussed with US officials the cases of the Yemeni detainees, dropping conditions set by the former president Ali Abdullah Saleh for their sending them back to Yemen, media sources had reported.
"Saleh demanded $200 million in return for receiving the Yemeni detainees, but the US offered him only $20 million. The two sides could not reach an agreement to release the detainees by then," the US officials told Hadi.One of the sources said the US officials admired Hadi who said the detainees are Yemenis and their government should be responsible for their release, it added. The Yemeni detainees make up about half of all those held in Guantanamo. In the past few years, a number of them were released and sent home.Several returned Yemeni detainees were charged and stood trial, following their repatriation. Yemen established a special Criminal Court for Terrorism where their trials took place.
Obama vowed during his campaign of the first term to shut down Guantanamo bay. However, his administration suspended the repatriation of Yemeni detainees , where a deteriorating security situation driven by a branch of al-Qaeda has stoked fears that detainees could join the terrorist organization if released.
