The Labour Party of Georgia demands immediate return of all the received Guantanamo bay ex-prisoners to their homeland - Georgia Times correspondent.

In his opinion, Saakashvili tries to win respect of the new U.S. administration and meet with Obama at the cost of security of own population.

Yesterday the USA sent three Guantanamo Bay inmates to Georgia.

The names do the prisoners are kept secret, the delivery was conducted only after agreement of all security measures by both sides, Reuter reports citing to the U.S. Justice Department.

The prison is planned to be closed on Barack Obama's decree. Now 185 inmates are left there - RIA Novosti.

"We are grateful to the government of Georgia for joining their efforts to close the detention facility at Guantanamo Bay," said State Department spokesman Philip Crowley - AFP.

Shota Utiashvili, the Interior Ministry spokesman, said that ex-prisoners, who arrived in the country, are origins from Middle East countries. They "will be free, will live as usual citizens and will be constantly in touch with their families." Yet they will be prohibited to leave Georgia.

Ekaterina Tkeshelashvili, the National Security Council Secretary, said Tbilisi agreed to accept Guantanamo Bay prisoners to improve relations with Washington.
