US court backs Guantanamo inmate


news.bbc.co.uk

A US court has for the first time rejected the classification of a prisoner held in Guantanamo Bay as an "enemy combatant".

Huzaifa Parhat, a Chinese Muslim, has been held since he was captured in Afghanistan in 2001.

He is now free to seek immediate release in a US district court.

This follows a US Supreme Court ruling this month that gave foreign Guantanamo Bay detainees the right to challenge their detention in civilian courts.

Wonder what this is, a glitch or something of a return to a respect of international laws again for the US . After years of blatant disregard of the above i'm not yet convinced , but a step in the right direction , for once .
