Former Gitmo detainees remain imprisoned without charge in Pakistan

[JURIST] More than three dozen Pakistanis transferred to their home country from detention at Guantanamo Bay remain imprisoned, most without charge, Pakistani government officials have said. The prisoners include 32 transferred by the US in September 2004 and another seven released in the past six weeks. According to the government sources, the prisoners protested their continued detention with a hunger strike and shouting at jail guards at Adiala jail. Brig. Javed Iqbal Cheema, a Pakistani Interior Ministry official said the prisoners were being "debriefed," but would not say how long they would remain in prison. Hundreds of Pakistanis went to fight against the US during its military operations in Afghanistan in 2001 and 2002. AP has more.
