US prisoners to migrate to Europe

Estonia has agreed to receive prisoners from the US Guantanamo Bay detention camp that is being closed down, Foreign Minister Urmas Paet told reporters after the government’s meeting on Thursday, ITAR-TASS reports.

“These are not criminals charged with terrorism, but suspects who were not put on trial over the absence of evidence. Therefore after the prison’ s closure they will be fully free,” he said expressing an opinion that prisoners would hardly return to their fatherland for fear of being repressed.

In general, there are around 60 such criminals in Guantanamo.

The United States addressed to the EU with a request to provide them an opportunity to reside in Europe.

“However, this will happen only if they express such a wish,” Paet said.
