Asked what was going to happen to the 6,500 prisoners detained by the Coalition in Iraq in the light of the transfer of sovereignty today, the PMS said that her colleague, who was attending the NATO Summit in Istanbul today, was briefing journalists there on all Iraqi matters. It would not be helpful were she to try to duplicate what he was saying. She said later that the prisoners would either be released or reclassified as criminal detainees under the new criminal justice system or as security internees, and would continue to be held by Coalition forces.
