MC Detachment, Guantanamo Bay Naval Base Military Lawyer
Guantanamo Bay Naval Base covers 45 square miles of land and water at Guantanamo Bay in Cuba. This is the same place leased by the United States to be used as naval station and coaling mines during the 1903 Cuban-American Treaty. It is strategically placed at the southeastern end of Cuba. It is also the first US Naval Base outside the country and the only military post in which the United States has no diplomatic relations.
As early as 1959, the Cuban government has constantly resisted against the presence of the US forces in Cuban lands and considers it illegal under modern international law. The naval base houses a military prison, the Guantanamo Bay detention camp for alleged unlawful combatants caught in Afghanistan, Iraq and other places since 2002. International controversy rang when the denial ofthe torture of prisoners here and protection under the Geneva Conventions.
