US court partly overturns Guantanamo prisoner's conviction

US court partly overturns Guantanamo prisoner's conviction 15 Jul 2014 The US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia has partially overturned the conviction of a prisoner at the notorious US-run Guantanamo prison. On Monday, the court vacated Ali Hamza al Bahlul's conviction for solicitation of others to commit war crimes and providing material support for terrorism, but upheld his conviction for conspiracy to commit war crimes. The court also ruled that the solicitation charge against Bahlul "is plainly not an offence traditionally triable by military commission," essentially saying that the commission does not have the authority to review such offence.
