French MP calls for ‘new Guantanamo Bay’ for Muslim terror suspects to be built off country’s coast

France should build its own Guantanamo Bay-style prison for terror suspects, the man overseeing the government’s response to the Paris attacks of 2015 has said.

George Fenech, the chairman of the French parliamentary investigative commission on terrorism, has proposed the construction of a “Guantanamo à la française”, according to Le Figaro.

He warned the government should expect a “tidal wave” of people currently fighting in Iraq and Syria to return to France due to the decline of Isis’ territorial standing.
