|Ibrahim Othman Ibrahim Idris
On Feb. 18, 2011, Muhammed
pleaded guilty in a military commission to offenses under the Military Commissions Act of 2009, and was sentenced to 14 years
confinement. In exchange for his guilty plea and Muhammed's cooperation with prosecutors, the Convening Authority for
Military Commissions agreed through a pre-trial agreement to suspend all confinement in excess of 34 months. Following
the completion of the unsuspended portion of his sentence as of Dec. 3, 2013, the United States Government has repatriated
Muhammed to Sudan.
Idris was released from Guantanamo in accordance with a court order issued on Oct. 4, 2013,
by the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. Idris has been designated for transfer since 2009 by unanimous consent
among all six departments and agencies on the Guantanamo Review Task Force. As directed by the president's Jan. 22, 2009,
executive order, the task force conducted a comprehensive review of Idris's case, which examined a number of factors, including
security issues, in making that designation. In accordance with congressionally mandated reporting requirements, the
administration informed Congress of its intent to transfer these individuals.
The United States coordinated
with the Government of Sudan regarding appropriate security measures and to ensure that these transfers are consistent with
our humane treatment policy.
These transfers bring the GTMO detainee population to 158.
