AMR 51/162/2007 18 October 2007
Fawaz Mahdi was released without charge from the Political Security prison in Sana’a on 8 October. He had been arrested when he arrived in Yemen from Guant·namo in June 2007.
Three other former Guant·namo detainees who had been detained with him were released with him. Amnesty International delegates met with three of the group in prison a few days before their release. Approximately 100 Yemeni nationals are still held in Guant·namo.
No further action is requested from the UA network. Many thanks to all who sent appeals.
