After months of pressure by Reprieve, a human rights organization, former Guantánamo prisoner Younous Chekkouri has finally been freed from a Moroccan jail.
The U.S. admitted Younous Chekkouri, a man held in Guantanamo for 14 years, has no ties to al-Qaida. But that may not stop Morocco from charging him anyway.
Kevin Gosztola recently appeared on The Matthew Filipowicz show to discuss the plight of former Guantanamo prisoner Younis Abdurrahman Chekkouri.
A Moroccan released from Guantanamo Bay prison was blindfolded and shackled during his flight to Morocco, where he remains in detention, according to his attorney. Younis Abdurrahman Chekkouri, who was detained for 13 years, was repatriated to Morocco last week. Moroccan authorities did not immediately release him.
