Washington DC (Sputnik) – President Donald Trump signed a law banning the transfer of prisoners from the US-run Guantanamo Bay detention center in Cuba to the United States and other countries. In other words, the prison will continue to run as a secret American detention facility, according to RT.
A law prohibiting the transfer of Guantanamo Bay detainees to other prisons in the US and beyond was inked by President Donald Trump, RT reported, referring to the White House’s press service.
Earlier, the US leader expressed his dissatisfaction with the fact that the prisoners imprisoned by his predecessor Barack Obama did not become law-abiding citizens and “returned to the battlefield.”
During his election campaign, Trump promised to “fill the prison with bad guys”; when he became president, he said that it is necessary to put an end to the release of prisoners from Guantanamo.
