The "International Law Compliance Forum", ILCF, have declared U.S. facilities at Guantanamo Bay to be an illegal occupation of Cuban territory.


 


The ILCF says that Guantanamo Bay belongs to Cuba and that the U.S. has no right to occupy and maintain any facilities in Cuba, as Cuba has not seeded legal authority over the area occupied by the Americans.


 


The Guantanamo Bay ownership has been highlighted by the fact that the U.S. Government deems Guantanamo Bay to be external to U.S. domestic legislation in relation to the detainees held by the US Government at the facility.


 


As Cuba does no recognise the U.S. occupation of Guantanamo and as Cuba did not give U.S. ongoing permission for the base to be occupied by its military, all those at the base, including the illegally held detainees are subject to Cuban law, not U.S. military law, according to ILCF legal experts.


 


The ILCF also says that U.S. activities at the base in relation to those held there are acts or terrorism in accordance with internationally recognised definitions as well as U.N. definitions.


 


The acts of terrorism claims relate to the illegal capture, transportation, interrogation, torture, and the general imprisonment of civilians.


 


The ILCF also claims that U.S. civilians, known to be employed by the CIA, America's own terrorism agency, have illegally entered Cuba, and Guantanamo Bay with orders to vigorously interrogate, meaning torture, detainees and that the U.S. military are illegally holding those detainees.


 


The ILFC has urged Cuba to take the U.S. to the International Court of Justice in order to set processes in place designed to seek an International Court ruling as to the removal of all U.S. facilities on Cuba.
