A writ of habeas corpus, Nasir Najr Nasir Balud Al Mutayri v.

Al Odah v. United States

Nasser Najiri Amtiri was among the eleven captives covered in the July 2008 "Petitioners' Status Report" filed by David J. Cynamon in Al Odah v. United States on behalf of the four remaining Kuwaiti prisoners in Guantanamo. Seven other prisoners were amalgamated to the case, which charged that none of the men had been cleared for release, even though the government had completed factual returns for them—and those factual returns had contained redacted sections.[8]

The decision, striking down the Military Commissions Act, was handed down on June 12, 2008.[9][10]

Medical records

On March 16, 2007 the Department of Defense published records of the captives' height and weights.[11]

Kuwaiti conviction overturned

The International Herald Tribune reports that a Kuwaiti citizen, named "Nasser al-Mutairi", who had formerly been detained in Guantanamo, had his conviction overturned,[13][14] They reported that he had been convicted:

"...for joining a foreign military force without permission, harming Kuwait by serving the interest of a foreign country and undergoing illegal weapons training.

He had been charged soon after his repatriation to Kuwait, in January 2005; acquitted in June 2005; had his acquittal overturned on appeal; was sentenced to five years imprisonment; only to have his conviction overturned in December, by Kuwait's highest court of appeal.[13]

Some reports say just two Kuwaitis remain in Guantanamo.[14] Other reports say four Kuwaitis remain in Guantanamo.[13]
