Subsequent Full Review
Executive Order 13567, signed by President Obama on March 7, 2011, establishes a policy and a process to review, on a periodic basis, the continued discretionary exercise of existing detention authority over detainees held at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba pursuant to the Authorization for Use of Military Force (Public Law 107-40).
The Periodic Review Secretariat (PRS) develops and administers the periodic review process for eligible Guantanamo Bay detainees, including provision of personal representatives to detainees.
The Periodic Review Secretariat performs all administrative functions for the periodic review process as described in Executive Order 13567 and DTM 12-005.
