A client for scraping and parsing the Periodic Review Secretariat's web page for Guananamo detainees.

Project description

>From their website: “The Periodic Review Secretariat (PRS) develops and administers the periodic review process for eligible Guantanamo Bay detainees, including provision of personal representatives to detainees.”

Usage

The PRB engages in three different forms of review for a Guantanamo detainee”s documents: An initial review, a file review and a full review. Technically, a fourth type, the subsequent full review, is available. To date, no subsequent full reviews have been posted.

Initial review

initial_review --csv > initial_review.csv
initial_review --json > initial_review.json
initial_review --tsv > initial_review.tsv

File review

file_review --csv > file_review.csv
file_review --json > file_review.json
file_review --tsv > file_review.tsv

Full review

full_review --csv > full_review.csv
full_review --json > full_review.json
full_review --tsv > full_review.tsv

Schema

Returns a row or an object for every document. Each document contains the document-specific fields like type_name, type_id, and url as well as the detainee-specific fields like name and isn. Builds a unique id for each document from isn-type_id-hearing_or_review_date.
