Gitmo reviews underway: US Attorney General

The US Attorney General says reviews are under way to decide which Guantanamo Bay detainees could face trial in American courts or special military tribunals.



Doha: The US Attorney General says reviews are under way to decide which Guantanamo Bay detainees could face trial in American courts or special military tribunals.
Eric Holder said today the decisions on some detainees could come as soon as next week.

The Senate last Thursday backed a plan that allows prosecution of suspects, including those accused in the September 11, 2001 attacks, in either federal courts or by a military commission.

Holder also told reporters in Qatar`s capital Doha that the Obama administration is working to meet its deadline to close the Guantanamo detention facility by January.

Holder is in Doha attending a global forum on fighting corruption.
