Four Afghan prisoners in the most notorious detention center, Bagram, have turned to a US court for help. They claim ignorance as to why they are being held.

The American Civil Liberties Union took on their cases, and Jonathan Manes from the ACLU explains why a Washington court should intervene in the situation.

“Like many people of Bagram, they have been held for more than a year, and two of our clients have been held for almost two years. We’ve talked to their family, we’ve talked to anyone we can get a hold of, and nobody has any idea of why they are being held. They have not been told as far as we know,” Manes told RT.

“I should say that this is not a first case – other Bagram detainees have brought their cases to the court,” he added. “And the federal court in the District of Columbia has held that at least some of them have the right to go to federal court to challenge their detention and to have a judge the United States review why they are lawfully held.”
