The United States Department of Defense acknowledges holding Libyan detainees in Guantanamo.[1] A total of 778 detainees have been held in extrajudicial detention in the Guantanamo Bay detention camps, in Cuba since the camps opened on January 11, 2002. The camp population peaked in 2004 at approximately 660. Hundreds of detainees were released without charges.

Following the United States Supreme Court's ruling in Rasul v. Bush (2004) that detainees had the right under habeas corpus to challenge their detention before an impartial tribunal, transfers to Guantanamo decreased.

Nineteen "high value detainees" have been transferred by the CIA to Guantanamo since September 2006, as the administration restricted their access to outside counsel and courts under the Military Commissions Act of 2006. This provision of the act was declared unconstitutional by the Supreme Court in Boumediene v. Bush (2008), which said detainees had the right of access to federal courts for habeas corpus challenges. As of February 24, 2010, the camp population stood at 188.[2]

On February 24, 2010, Albania accepted the transfer of three former detainees, a Libyan, an Egyptian, and a Tunisian.[2]

  • His case was considered by two Combatant Status Review Tribunals. The first Tribunal in November 2004 determined he had not been an "enemy combatant" and there was no evidence of al-Qaeda involvement. A second Tribunal was convened 55 days later with new members, in Washington, at which neither the detainee nor his representative was present. Claiming new "secret" information, the tribunal in January 2005 found him to be an enemy combatant. His attorney reviewed the files in 2006 and found there was no new information, secret or otherwise, and described the ruling as a "kangaroo court."[20][21] No charges were ever filed against him.[22]
