Prof. Fionnuala Ní Aoláin Quoted by The Intercept on Guantanamo Prisoner Release

Professor Fionnuala Ní Aoláin was quoted by The Intercept on the release of a current prisoner at the U.S. prison at Guantánamo Bay. Having faced harsh and "brutal conditions" upon his return to Alergia, Bakhouch is not the only former detainee who has faced human rights abuses after his release. Professor Ní Aoláin commented that she “continues to be deeply concerned about the robustness of the U.S. Government’s non-refoulement assessment and the protection of human rights for those who have been transferred from Guantanamo Bay to countries of nationality or third countries.”
