Abdullah Abdulqadirakhun is an Uyghur refugee, who was held for more than seven years in Guantanamo Bay detention camps, in Cuba.[1]

The Department of Defense reports that Abdulqadirakhum was born on June 18, 1979, in Xinjiang [sic] China and assigned him the Internment Serial Number 285.

Abdulqadirakhun was one of the 22 Uighurs held in Guantanamo. It was later learned that he was innocent of the claims against him.[2][3][4]

He won his habeas corpus in 2008. Judge Ricardo Urbina declared his detention as unlawful and ordered to set him free in the United States. He was sent to Bermuda in June 2009 together with three other Uyghurs, Abdul Helil Mamut, Huzaifa Parhat and Emam Abdulahat, on June 11, 2009.[5]
