RABAT, Morocco (AP) – A Rabat criminal court postponed a trial of five Moroccans formerly held at the US military prison in Guantanamo Bay and temporarily released three of them, including a suspected bodyguard for Osama bin Laden, his lawyer said.
Arrested in Pakistan and Afghanistan in late 2001, all five were accused of taking training courses in how to handle firearms and make explosives.
The court had rejected an initial request Dec. 7 to release the suspects from prison and gave no immediate explanation for why it had changed its mind regarding three of the suspects, said defence attorney Abdelfattah Zahrach. No bond was posted.
Among the three released is Abdelleh Tabarak, 49, suspected of serving as a bodyguard for al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden in Sudan and Afghanistan. Lawyers said they expected the three – Zahrach, Mohamed Ouzar and Radouane Chekkouri – to be freed Monday evening.
