“Six men released from Guantánamo: 136 Remain
We are excited to announce that there were six men released to Uruguay last weekend. After 9 months of negotiations, President José Mujica and the Obama administration agreed on that Abu Wa’el Dhiab (Syria), Ahmed Adnan Ahjam (Syria), Ali Hussein al-Shaaban (Syria), Abdelhadi Faraj (Syria), Mohammed Taha Mattan (Palestine), Abdul Bin Mohammed Abis Ourgy (Tunisia) will resettle there as refugees. We will continue to keep them in our prayers and thoughts as they transition out of cells of Guantanamo into the fresh air of freedom. For more information on the release, click here.
These releases bring us one step closer to shuddering the prison. However, 136 people remain. 68 have been cleared for release. 58 are “forever” detainees. 10 detainees are in the Military Commission system.”
