The Gitmo Observer has shared the Guantanamo Bay Fair Trial Manual with many NGO Observers and others who have traveled to Guantanamo Bay, Cuba or Ft. Meade, Maryland to monitor U.S. Military Commission hearings. We have also shared the Manual with many others who may or may not have involvement with the Guantanamo Bay proceedings. Comments returned to us on the Manual have been generally very favorable, constructive, helpful and supportive.
From time to time, the Gitmo Observer will post some of these comments on our website.
Here’s a comment that came in today from an Observer who was recently in Guantanamo Bay to monitor hearings:
“While I was there [at Guantanamo Bay last week] I was given a copy of the Guantanamo Bay Fair Trial Manual for U.S. Military Commissions. I read it cover to cover. This is simply required reading for anyone who goes [to Guantanamo Bay] to observe. Thank you for the enormous effort it must have taken to produce it… . I feel a high calling to meet the obligations you note for an observer to report what they have observed.”
If you have any comments about the Guantanamo Bay Fair Trial Manual, please let us know! Please write to us at GitmoObserver@yahoo.com.
We would love to hear from you:
- if you have monitored hearings at Ft. Meade or Guantanamo Bay
- if you are scheduled to monitor hearings at Ft. Meade or Guantanamo Bay
- if you have not monitored hearings, but have comments
In short, we are happy to hear from you!
