Guantanamo Bay Force Feeding Trial On Monday, the first trial over force-feeding Guantanamo detainees begins. The man behind the case is a prisoner named Abu Wa’el Dhiab. He’s been at Guantanamo for 12 years. He hasn’t been charged with any crime and was cleared for release five years ago. Since then he’s protested his imprisonment with hunger strikes.
