ALGIERS, Algeria (AP) — An Algerian judge has put two detainees recently released from the U.S. prison in Guantanamo Bay under "judicial control," a type of supervised parole.
The men, identified as Nabil Hadjarab and Mutia Sadiq Ahmad Sayyab, were returned to Algeria on Aug. 28 and detained pending interrogation by a prosecutor, which 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 Guantanamo so far have been released.
Both men were cleared for release from Guantanamo years ago.
Writer John Grisham recently called attention to Hadjarab's case in a New York Times article.
There are nearly 90 prisoners cleared for release or transfer out of a population of 164.
