Haj Boudella

Haj Boudella was born in Algeria in 1965. He was one of six Algerian-born residents of Bosnia (5 had become citizens), who were arrested by Bosnian authorities in October 2001. In January 2002 they were extradited to the US Military authorities. He was detained for over six years, returning home to his family in Bosnia in December 2008 after a landmark Supreme Court decision in Boumediene v. Bush.
