The National Organization for Defending Rights and Freedoms (HOOD) sent a letter to President Saleh requesting Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of the Interior and the Ministry of Human Rights to join with HOOD in calling for the release of Guantanamo detainees.

HOOD Organization called on these bodies to help it establish a team to help bring back Yemeni detainees from Guantanamo Bay, as well as many other detainees in other prisons around the world on the accusations of being involved with terrorism.

The letter confirmed that many countries including Britain, Sweden and Morocco could recover their citizens who were detained in these prisons, particularly after the US courts issued their verdict on the unlawfulness of Guantanamo detentions.
