Supreme Court rejects Guantanamo appeals



WASHINGTON (AFP) – The US Supreme Court on Monday rejected three appeals by Guantanamo detainees protesting their indefinite detention.

The highest US court did not decide three other appeals, including one filed by ethnic Uighur Chinese Muslims who were arrested in error in Afghanistan in 2001, and are still being held at the US military base at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

The three appeals denied had asserted that the inmates’ rights to challenge their detention had been violated and maintained that the indefinite detentions violated international rights law.
