Al-Zubair ibn Abd-al-Muttalib

Abd-Al-Nisr Mohammed Khantumani v. George Walker Bush

Tumani v. Bush is a habeas corpus petition filed on behalf of several captives held in extrajudicial detention in the United States' Guantanamo Bay detention camps, in Cuba.

Two Syrians, Abd Al Nasir Mohammed Abd Al Qadir Khantumani, Muhammad Abd Al Nasir Muhammad Khantumani, a father and son, were among the captives whose habeas petitions were amalgamated in this petition. They were represented by Elizabeth Ainslie who appeared on their behalf before Ricardo M. Urbina.

Both men had the unclassified documents from their Combatant Status Review Tribunals published in response to their habeas petitions.

Military Commissions Act

The Military Commissions Act of 2006 mandated that Guantanamo captives were no longer entitled to access the US civil justice system, so all outstanding habeas corpus petitions were stayed.

Boumediene v. Bush

On June 12 2008 the United States Supreme Court ruled, in Boumediene v. Bush, that the Military Commissions Act could not remove the right for Guantanamo captives to access the US Federal Court system. And all previous Guantanamo captives' habeas petitions were eligible to be re-instated.
