Bellamy Bay is a military prison belonging to the ASD United Navy near the city of the same name.  It is a specialized prison used to detain prisoners of war or foreign terror suspects captured during battles or raids.  It was built after the Speaking Day War to detain spies, terrorists, and prisoners of war in the event of another war.

Facilities

Bellamy Bay has six main camps: Alpha, Golf, Charlie, Sierra, Tango, and Echo.  Alpha is a 700-unit detention facility built in April of 2002, and is used for conventional prisoners of war.  Sierra is a 650-unit detention facility for unlawful combatants, those who are not part of an established enemy army; they are not entitled to the protection of the Geneva Convention.  Echo is the Psychiatric Ward of the prison, used for any suicide attempts or self-injury.  Charlie is a 300-unit detention facility for High-Value detainees deemed “too dangerous” for the rest of the camp.  Golf is where the tribunals are held while Tango is a black site reportedly used by the State Intelligence Wing.

Detainees

There are many types of people detained at Bellamy Bay, yet their are four main types.  They include, but are not limited to:

-Foreign/Illegal alien terrorists captured by the military or intelligence agencies

-Spies

-Prisoners of War

-High-Value Enemies of the Neurodivergent peoples

Foreign terrorists are either captured near a terrorist organization, within it, or on a battlefield.  Spies are usually caught within the AU’s borders, and some of our citizens and/or government employees are believed to be espionage-related traitors.  Prisoners of War are held in high regard, yet interrogated in a coercive manner.  No matter what category a detainee may fall into, they are usually held without trial, legal counsel, or even contact with the outside world.  They can be held for weeks, months, or even years at a time; there is virtually no chance of release unless the detainee is found not guilty of terrorism or espionage.

The detainees are usually stripped of all their clothing and given a red prison outfit which consists of a long-sleeve shirt and medical-like pants.  Afterwards they are fingerprinted, a blood sample is taken, and the detainees receive a serial number which they are referred to throughout their detention.  The detainees are also housed in cage cells that are 7 feet tall and 6 feet wide, and “repositioned” as a means of disorientation.  The process of interrogation usually occurs during the day, yet sleep is “readjusted” by the guards, who come from the army or navy’s military police.  These men and women monitor and control the detainees while the army interrogators handle the questioning.

Over 20,000 people have been detained at Bellamy Bay since it activated in 2001.  Many of these detainees have been convicted of terrorist acts and/or espionage and sentenced accordingly.  Around 3,000 have been reportedly executed for said terrorist acts with 7,000 released.  The other 10,000 people have either been either transferred elsewhere or have died within the prison. There have been over 600-700 suicide attempts throughout the prison’s history, with only 36 deaths as a result.

The detainees have been captured from many terror, espionage, and other groups.  They include, but are not limited to:

-Get Aware

-Al-Shabab

-Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS)

-Al-Nusra

-Department 32 Operatives (Including the Special Operations Forces)

-Muslim Brotherhood

-Normal Youth Authority (Arrowgazia-backed)

Interrogation

There are many methods of enhanced interrogation employed at Bellamy Bay.

They include, but are not limited to:

-Waterboarding

-White Noise

-Forced Grooming (Head and face shaving)

-Sleep adjustment

-Stress positions

-Religious/Ideological shaming

-“Black and White” interpretation during questioning

-Loud music

-Denial of toilet use

During questioning, detainees’ every word and mannerism is dissected and given an odd interpretation (such as the assumption of recruitment for terror groups).  Any electronics, wallets, or other items they have on their person are searched for terror-related material which could indicate past or future acts of terrorism.  Many cellphones and wallets have included material such as cards, papers, and images of either terrorist propaganda or actual depictions of violence.

Tribunals

Although there are no trials at Bellamy Bay, there are events known as “Status Hearings” which are used to determine whether a person is an unlawful enemy combatant or not.  Detainees were usually required to attend their own hearings in which they were shackled to a plastic chair and blindfolded.  The identity of the five reviewers is always classified, yet they are usually from all three branches of the armed services.  One hearing team had an Air Force Major and a Navy Lieutenant, and one had two Army Platoon Sergeants.  Sometimes a non-military translator was called in to translate for a detainee (At least 30-60 times).  Most detainees have been incriminated for terrorist acts and supposedly executed by the Department of Defense.
