Slimane Hadj Abderrahmane, the Danish citizen arrested by US forces in Pakistan and detained on Guantanamo as an ‘unlawful combatant’, has decided to give up his lawsuit against the United States government, reports national broadcaster DR.
Abderrahmane’s lawyer, Tyge Trier, announced the decision in a message to Ritzau news agency on Monday.
Trier, however, did not give any reason why his client was dropping his case.
The statement did maintain that the imprisonment and the situation on Guantanamo were violations of international law.
‘Slimane and I found that both the way he was treated and the actual judicial construction that placed the prisoners in a legal vacuum outside of the protection of the conventions violated international laws,’ wrote Trier in a short statement….
Abderrahmane is the man who declared last fall that he was going to go to Chechnya to rejoin the jihad. Will he go now?
