Saudi detainees at Guantanamo discussed at tripartite meeting

Members of the Kingdom’s security delegation in charge of the file on Saudi detainees in Guantanamo, the official U.S. delegation dealing with that file, and lawyers representing the Saudis detained in Guantanamo, held a tripartite meeting today at the Ministry of Interior in Riyadh. Further meetings are planned in the United States, with the aim of either securing the release of the Saudi detainees, obtaining extradition orders for them to return to the Kingdom, or arraigning them to appear before the courts in the United States.
