A complaint has been filed with the US Navy Inspector General’s Office demanding that court facilities at Gitmo be tested for carcinogens and lawyers be evacuated from the base

At least seven civilian and military staff members who took part in detainee trials at Guantanamo Bay have been diagnosed with cancer. Three of them, aged 35 to 52, have died in the last 13 months.

Bill Kuebler, a former Guantanamo war court lawyer, died just a week ago on July 17
Kuebler was diagnosed with a particularly virulent form of cancer

may be the result of Guantanamo personnel being exposed to carcinogens, as the location of the court had been formerly used as a jet fuel disposal dump, and toxins such as asbestos were used in the construction of the buildings hosting military trials

The Miami Herald has created a list of cancer cases among Guantanamo personnel who worked at Camp Justice, the base’s court, for some period from 2008 to present. The list includes nine people who developed different types of cancer, including brain, appendix and colon cancer, as well as lymphoma.

According to these medics,... 7 of 200 people developing different types of cancer could be considered normal.

Yeah, maybe... is the cancer rate really that high? What seems suspicious though is that 3 of them all died within 13 months of each other... And happened to be working on top of a former jet fuel disposal dump.

I believe the suspected cause was the location where the lawyers and other court people were working, ie on top of a fuel dump, rather than where the detainees live.

Could be anything from frequent flying to security scans if there is proven to be a correlation.
