During a press conference on Monday, Fionnuala Ní Aoláin, the first U.N. Independent Investigator to visit Guantanamo Bay, reported that the 30 remaining prisoners held in the facility are subjected to “ongoing cruel, inhuman, and degrading treatment under international law.” In her report released on June 14th, she recognized the U.S. Government's “substantial efforts to live up to its international human rights law obligations” but also urged the U.S. to ensure accountability for all violations of international law, including to victims of counter-terrorism practices and terrorism itself. She expressed deep concern about the lack of torture rehabilitation and the fact that 19 out of the 30 detainees at Guantanamo have never been charged with a crime. The United States responded to the report, stating that the investigator's findings are solely her own and disagreeing with many factual and legal assertions. One of Ní Aoláin's clear recommendations was the immediate closure of Guantanamo Bay, a priority of the Biden Administration.
