Another prisoner boycotts Gitmo hearings

Another prisoner boycotted a US status review hearing at Guantanamo Bay Wednesday. The hearing was held to determine whether the 37-year-old alleged former religious instructor who received weapons training at an Al Qaida camp in Afghanistan was properly classified as an "enemy combatant" or should be released.

Military officials said he was the 39th prisoner to stay away from the status hearings since they began. AP has more. JURIST has an archive of previous reports on Guantanamo.
