GITMO

Portugal to Take 2 or 3 Detainees

Portugal is on track to become the next country to receive Guantanamo detainees, as officials work to resettle the 200 prisoners Washington has chosen not to prosecute. The Iberian nation is currently taking the necessary internal steps to welcome “two or three” prisoners; Spain and Italy have offered to take detainees from the prison as well. Last year, Portugal became the first country to insist publicly that the European Union embark on a coordinated resettlement plan for the prison camp’s detainees.
