'US commits gross human rights abuses at Guantanamo jail' (VIDEO)
An analyst says a dreadful violation of internationally accepted basic human rights is taking place in America's Guantanamo military prison.
The comment comes as The US military's southern command plans to build a new prison quarters at the notorious Guantanamo Bay military base for "special" detainees.
The United States Southern Command has asked for USD 49 million to construct a new jail at the Guantanamo military prison and torture facility for "special" inmates and other required renovations "since Congress has decided to keep it open indefinitely,"
The New York Times reported Friday. The amount, if approved, would bring the taxpayer cost for upgrading the deteriorating prison camp to an estimated USD 196 million, the report adds, citing military officials.
Press TV has conducted an interview with political analyst Mark Mason to further discuss the issue.
