Parliament passed a resolution on the situation of the hunger-striking prisoners in

Guantánamo. The resolution calls on US authorities to treat detainees with respect for

their inherent dignity and to uphold their human rights and fundamental freedoms.

The US authorities should review the military commission system to ensure fair trials,

close Guatánamo and prohibit in any circumstances the use of torture, ill-treatment and

indefinite detention without trial, MEPs say.
