U.S. Appeals Court Sends Guantanamo Case to D.C.

The first case from a detanee from Guantanamo Bay Naval Base has just been sent to the federal courts in Washington D.C. from the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals (of pledge case infamy) in California. The case, filed by Belaid Gherebi a Libyan on behalf of his brother Falen, sets the first procedures for appeals of the status of so-called enemy combantants. Meanwhile, the Pentagon has set up a three man tribunal to review the cases of all Gitmo detainees.
