UN-Berichterstatter Nowak fordert Wiedergutmachung für Guantanamo-Opfer

Der UN-Sonderberichterstatter für Folterfälle, Manfred Nowak, fordert eine Wiedergutmachung für Opfer des US-Gefangenenlagers Guantanamo auf Kuba. Nowak sagte am Freitag (23. Januar) im Deutschlandradio Kultur, bei der Aufarbeitung der Geschehnisse in Guantanamo gehe es zuerst um die Opfer. Er fügte hinzu: "Da ist einmal primär, dass die Opfer von Menschenrechtsverletzungen auch wirklich Wiedergutmachung bekommen." Die zweite Frage sei dann, welche Konsequenzen gegen die Täter ergriffen würden. Nowak sprach sich für die Aufnahme unschuldiger Guantanamo-Häftlinge in der Europäischen Union (EU) aus.

Calling a Time Out

George McGovern, The Washington Post: "As you settle into the Oval Office, Mr. President, may I offer a suggestion? Please do not try to put Afghanistan aright with the US military.
