- Government is embarking on plans to get Gitmo detainees out of the country
- Minister of foreign affairs says government is looking into agreements with US again
Minister of foreign affairs, Shirley Ayorkor Botchwey has hinted that government is bent on exploring new diplomatic ways of getting the Gitmo duo out of the country.
YEN.com.gh had earlier reported of how the government will be unable to repatriate both men upon exhausting their two-year stay in Ghana beginning from the Mahama-administration in 2016. According to the government, the agreement the erstwhile Mahama administration signed with the American government prevents Ghana from effecting any move to send these men out of the country.
Speaking to Joy News, the minister revealed that plans are far advanced to consider ways of reversing the strict conditions under which the erstwhile Mahama administration received the detainees.
The Yemenis came to Ghana in January 2016 to stay for two years under a diplomatic agreement as the United States government worked to close down its infamous detention centre, Guantanamo Bay, where the suspects lived for 14 years.
