Wazir (Bagram captive, 2002)
Haji Wazir is a citizen of Afghanistan who was captured in Pakistan in 2002, and held since then in extrajudicial detention in the United States' Bagram Theater internment facility. He is notable because he is one of the very few captives in Bagram who has had a writ of habeas corpus filed on his behalf.
On June 29, 2009 US District Court Judge John D. Bates ruled that Wazir, unlike non-Afghans held in Bagram, was not entitled to pursue his habeas corpus petition. The Guardian reported that Wazir was apprehended in the United Arab Emirates.
