Detainee Transfer Announced
The Department of Defense announced today the transfer of Nabil Said Hadjarab and Mutia Sadiq Ahmad Sayyab from the detention facility at Guantanamo Bay to the Government of Algeria.
As directed by the President’s Jan. 22, 2009, executive order, the interagency Guantanamo Review Task Force conducted a comprehensive review of this case. As a result of that review, which examined a number of factors, including security issues, these men were approved for transfer by consensus of the six departments and agencies comprising the task force. In accordance with Congressionally-mandated reporting requirements, the administration informed Congress of its intent to transfer these individuals.
The United States is grateful to the Government of Algeria for its willingness to support ongoing U.S. efforts to close the Guantanamo Bay detention facility. The United States coordinated with the Government of Algeria to ensure these transfers took place consistent with appropriate security and humane treatment measures.
Today, 164 detainees remain at Guantanamo Bay.

SNIPPET: “The men, Nabil Hadjarab, 34, and Motai Sayab, 37, were returned to Algeria on Aug. 28 and detained pending interrogation by a prosecutor. That took place Thursday, the state news agency reported, quoting the court of Algiers.
Their treatment follows the pattern for other Algerians released from the prison. Most of the other 13 returned from Guantánamo so far have been released.”
