[JURIST] A federal judge met with Justice Department lawyer Terry Henry Thursday to discuss why the US has not yet released two Chinese Uighur Muslims still held at the Guantanamo Bay prison camp [JURIST news archive] after the government determined they posed no threat to the US as enemy combatants [JURIST report]. Henry met with US District Judge James Robertson [official profile] in a closed-door meeting to explain the steps the US is taking to find a country for the men to enter, since they fear persecution if returned to China. Their lawyer is requesting that they be released temporarily to live with a US resident who has agreed to house them. The Chinese nationals were captured from Pakistan in 2001 as they fled from a Taliban military training camp. Read Judge Robertson's order [PDF] from last week regarding the men's status. AP has more.
