Dealing with terrorists and suspected terrorists
Transcript of Dealing with terrorists and suspected terrorists
Notes for dealing with terorrists and suspected terrorists for USA, Nigeria and Saudi Arabia:
holds terrorists and dissidents in Ha'ir prison in desert south of the capital Riyadh.
Beginning of this year, IS threatened to destroy the prison after the execution of 47 men who were mostly convicted Al-Qaeda members
Saudi Arabia has a tough stance on terrorism which contrasts with its reputation
(homeland of Osama Bin Laden, 15 / 19 of the 9/11 hijackers, use of beheadings and other Sharia punishments by the state)
ISIS is a threat to Saudi Arabia
Members of public encouraged to call confidential 990 phone line which gets 180 tips a week about suspected terrorists
About 5% of the population (around 500 000) of Saudi Arabia support ISIS (independent polling)
34 states decided to form a military alliance led by Saudi Arabia to fight terrorism – a number of majority Muslim states in Africa, Asian countries such as Pakistan, Bangladesh, Malaysia, Indonesia, Qatar and Turkey
Criticisms: no defined objectives, no military coordination
Omissions of Iran and Iraq due to Shia majority sees split of Muslim world on matter between Sunni and Shia
Main threat: Boko Haram (islamist terrorist organisation)
Multinational Joint Task Force (MNJTF) between Nigeria, Chad, and Niger reactivated to deal with Boko Haram specifically and Lake Chad Basin Commission states also pledged troops and improved military coordination to fight cause
Contrast of success between dealing with terrorists through conflict and military / incarceration – Nigerian military focuses on countering terrorism through fighting
Terrorists detained in Guantanamo Bay and Metropolitan Correctional Centre (MCC)
The average length of time that defendants in federal terrorism prosecutions spend in solitary confinement prior to trial is 22 months according to a 2014 report by Human Rights Watch.
Amnesty International described pre-trial solitary confinement at MCC as amounting to “cruel, inhuman, or degrading treatment”
Obama called to close Guantanamo Bay, Cuba within a year at the beginning of his presidency but still has not succeeded in this
Force-feeding practices at Guantanamo Bay – more than 250 doctors from UK, USA, Germany, Australia, etc condemned US for force feeding hunger strikers.
Force feeding of hunger strikers is regarded as a form of torture by UN Human Rights commission
