[JURIST] A Kuwait court Wednesday cleared Nasser al-Mutairi of committing an act of aggression against a foreign nation. Mutairi, the first Kuwait to be freed from Guantanamo Bay [JURIST report] in January, had been charged with endangering Kuwait's foreign relations by taking up arms against a foreign nation. He had been captured by the US in the wake of operations in Afghanistan in 2001. Mutairi maintained his innocence claiming he was relief worker rather than a trained terrorist; his lawyer argued at the outset of his case that a Kuwaiti court had no jurisdiction to try him [JURIST report]. AFP has more. For more information on Kuwaiti prisoners at Guantanamo, visit Project Kuwaiti Freedom [advocacy website], sponsored by the Kuwaiti Family Committee.
