Cleared Guantánamo Prisoner Files Last-Ditch Lawsuit Seeking Immediate Release

Reprieve

A cleared Moroccan who should have been released months ago has begged a federal judge to cut through the red tape keeping him stranded in Guantánamo Bay.

Abdul Latif Nasser, 51, was unanimously cleared by the Periodic Review Board for transfer home to Morocco on July 11, but remains imprisoned because the government's transfer process has been too slow. He now faces indefinite detention at the mercy of the Trump Administration.
