[JURIST] A leading Pakistan daily reported Friday that 40 detainees released from US detention at Guantanamo Bay have been held without charges at Rawalpindi's Adiala prison for the past eight months. Pakistani law currently allows the detention of "Indian agents" in the country for a full year before bringing them to trial. The Pakistani government has become increasingly suspicious of former Taliban fighters or jihadists that may be opposed to the rule of President Pervez Musharraf [official profile], who has already survived two al-Qaeda assassination attempts. Islamists view Musharraf's alliance with President Bush on the war on terror and the dropped support for the Taliban as a betrayal. The ex-Guantanamo prisoners have protested their imprisonment with hunger strikes and continuous shouting at prison guards [JURIST report]. Reuters has more.
