Attorney General calls for Guantanamo to close

Lord GoldsmithAttorney-General Lord Goldsmith is at last to call for the US to close Guantánamo Bay, in a speech this week to the Royal United Services Institute:

'There are certain principles on which there can be no compromise,' Goldsmith will say. 'Fair trial is one of those - which is the reason we in the UK were unable to accept that the US military tribunals proposed for those detained at Guantánamo Bay offered sufficient guarantees of a fair trial in accordance with international standards.'
