Rule of Law
WASHINGTON – President-elect Obama‘s advisers are quietly crafting a proposal to ship dozens, if not hundreds, of imprisoned terrorism suspects to the United States to face criminal trials, a plan that would make good on his promise to close the Guantanamo Bay prison but could require creation of a controversial new system of justice.
O controversial, no caso, seria expor os prisioneiros de Gitmo ao processo de Corte Marcial, nos termos do processo penal militar americano.
According to three advisers participating in the process, Obama is expected to propose a new court system, appointing a committee to decide how such a court would operate. Some detainees likely would be returned to the countries where they were first captured for further detention or rehabilitation. The rest could probably be prosecuted in U.S. criminal courts, one adviser said. All spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss the ongoing talks, which have been private.
Mais ainda: os prisioneiros vao ser mantidos em cortes dentro dos estados unidos, os que forem considerados perigosos o suficiente para nao serem deportado de volta para seus paises.
Viu, nem foi tao dificil!
