Email from Henry Bisharat, DOS to Betsy Anderson re: Swedish Foreign Minister Freivalds on Guantanamo Detainee Agreement

July 8, 2005 | DOS | ACLU-RDI 3968
Email from Henry Bisharat to Betsy Anderson forwarding an article by the Associated Press re: "Swedish Man Is Released From Guantanamo." Mr. Bisharat comments are synopsizing the article and stating that he also heard Foreign Minister Freivalds speaking on Radio EKOT saying about the agreement: "Between the Foreign Ministry and the Pentagon this is only about flying him home. We have made sure that the Swedish authorities will handle the case according to the Swedish legal system and this it will make its own judgments. This is not something that the Foreign Ministry will get involved in - its a matter for the Swedish police."
