R to redfishstream: Despite outward commitments to safe transfers for ex-detainees, the U.S. released 45 people from Guantanamo prison to third countries without securing their legal status. The U.S. has left them vulnerable to re-detention, deportation, and destitution — outcomes like Mingazov’s.
Ravil Mingazov spent 15 years at Guantánamo Bay without charge or committing a crime. Then the U.S. sent him to the UAE without legal documentation. As a result, he’s been in UAE prison for 4 more years and faces the threat of forced repatriation to Russia.
