Aims and Objectives
Through its vast connections with released prisoners spanning three continents, the Guantanamo Justice Centre seeks to represent the interests of all the men held in Guantanamo – past and present.
Aims and Objectives:
GJC is a non-governmental humanitarian establishment. Our main intent is to support and protect the rights of Guantánamo Bay survivors– particularly after their release.
Many of the former prisoners and members of GJC are actively involved with relatives, legal teams and human rights organisations in seeking justice for the remaining Guantanamo prisoners.
GJC will seek to empower and assist the Guantanamo Survivors in rebuilding their lives.
As such, we aim to:-
1. Continue and increase efforts – through cooperation with existing parties – to secure the timely release of prisoners currently held at Guantánamo Bay and those who have been imprisoned upon return to their countries.
2. Plan, implement and monitor the social and psychological rehabilitation and reintegration of former prisoners into their respective societies.
3. Pursue legal action to clear prisoners of accusations made against them by the US administration.
4. Seek monetary and non-monetary compensation appropriate to the level of injustice and abuse faced by prisoners.
5. Offer necessary moral and financial support to the families of prisoners in cooperation with human rights activists and organisations.
