Yesterday it was announced that the Review board (PRB) has approved for transfer Yemeni Majid Mahmoud Ahmed (ISN 41).
The prison population remains at 91: 35 are cleared, 46 are awaiting clearance, and 10 are in the military commission system (of those, 7 are in “active” “trial” proceedings while 3 have been “convicted”).
Of the 35 cleared, 29 (82.9%) are Yemenis and 6 are non-Yemenis.
Of the 46 awaiting clearance, 20 are Yemenis and 26 are non-Yemenis.
The PRB has approved for transfer 18 of the 21 detainees for whom it has issued decisions.
Of the 46 detainees who are PRB-eligible and still awaiting clearance, three were denied clearance in their initial appearance before the PRB; 10 are officially in the PRB process and awaiting their first hearing or decision; and the remaining 33 have not yet officially begun the process. (For these purposes, a detainee is “officially in the PRB process” when he shows up on the PRB web page tracking individual detainees’ proceedings.)
h/o to fellow Gitmo attorney Brian Foster for providing these updates.
