USA: Judge orders Mohammed Jawad’s release from Guantánamo; administration still mulling trial

Index Number: AMR 51/088/2009

On 30 July 2009, US District Court Judge Ellen Segal Huvelle ordered the release, “beginning on August 21, 2009”, of Afghan national Mohammed Jawad from the US Naval Base at Guantánamo Bay in Cuba, where he has been held since early 2003. Although Amnesty International is concerned by the three-week delay in the release of a detainee unlawfully held, it nevertheless welcomes the beginning of remedy for Mohammed Jawad.
