The nature of international human rights law has been dramatically altered by Americans since the attacks on the twin towers on September 11, 2001. The Guantanamo Bay detention camp is an example of recent developments that seem to disregard long standing human rights. The United States of America (USA) has pursued a ‘seemingly deliberate strategy’ to put suspected terrorists outside the reach of habeas corpus protections. Guantanamo Bay prison is a United States military prison near Cuba designed for the detention of non-citizens suspected of terrorist activity. At the time of its creation President Bush stated that its purpose was to respond to serious war crimes, primarily ‘a new way to deal with terrorists'. The first camp was set up 3 months after the attacks on the twin towers and since then a human rights debate has begun over the legality of denying detainees the right to petition habeas corpus.
The detainees at the United States Guantanamo Bay detention camps, in Cuba have had over 200 writs of habeas corpus submitted on their behalf.
