On September 3, 2010, the US Court of Military Commission Review announced that it would hear the appeal of Salim Ahmed Hamdan, the former driver of Osama Bin Laden. In August 2008, Hamdan was convicted of providing material support for terrorism and sentenced to 66 months in prison. Hamdan was released from prison to his native Yemen in order to serve out the final month of his sentence and has subsequently been discharged.
