After eight years of detention in Guantanamo Bay, Arkin Mahmud and Bahtiyar Mahnut were sent to Switzerland to resettle, the Justice Department announced.

The case dealt with detainees to be released while they have nowhere else to go. Following Switzerland’s agreement, the Court dismissed the case at the request of the Administration.
