För er som missat: Sweden accepts ex-Guantanamo man

"Sweden has agreed to give asylum to a Chinese Muslim man who was held at Guantanamo Bay for almost five years.

The migration court accepted that Adel Hakimjan, from China's Uighur minority, was not a terrorist and granted him permanent residency as a refugee.

There are still 17 Uighurs being held at Guantanamo Bay. They refuse to return to China because they fear persecution there.

Activists welcomed Sweden's move and urged other countries to follow suit. "

The 17 Uighurs still being held at Guantanamo have all been cleared for release, but the US cannot find any country willing to take them. "

...mer än Sverige då...
