other appeals remain pending This is not a record of ringing prosecutorial success Of the five men I represented including the Taliban political official just sent to Qatar none were ever charged with even the most minor crime; they were simply held for years without charges until it pleased the government to send them back Where is the evidence that they are terrorists About half of the 149 men still left at Guantánamo have long been determined not to be a threat and have been approved for transfer; the only impediments to their release are political In his closing speech to that Boston jury John Adams quoted these lines from the Italian penologist Cesare Marchese di Beccaria: If by supporting the rights of mankind and of invincible truth I shall contribute to save from the agonies of death one unfortunate victim of tyranny or of ignorance equally fatal his blessings and years of transport will be sufficient consolation to me for the contempt of all mankind Contesting the basis for our countrys indefinite detention of these men has been costly and challenging but professionally fulfilling Certain episodes in our history the internment of Japanese-American citizens during World War II comes to mind are now regarded in hindsight as tragic aberrations from American values At such times it is the duty of lawyers to step forward and hold the nation accountable to its ideals Contact us at [email protected] Arabia’s Deputy Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman at a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin during SPIEF2015 Saint Petersburg International Economic Forum on June 18” adding that the ruling party is working assiduously.
