Guantanamo Bay, CUBA: (FILES) Photo dated 06 December 2006 shows a detainee escorted by US military guards to his annual Admistrative Review Board hearing inside Camp Delta’s Maximum Security area on the US naval base at Guantanamo Bay in Cuba. Foreign nationals held at the US-run prison at Guantanamo Bay are barred from using the US court system to challenge their detentions, a federal appeals court ruled 20 February 2007. The DC Circuit Court in a two-to-one opinion rejected the detainees’ argument that their cases were not covered by the Military Commissions Act of 2006, enacted by Congress last October after the Supreme Court challenged the legality of the panels initially set up by President George W. Bush. AFP PHOTO/FILES/Paul J. RICHARDS (Photo credit should read PAUL J. RICHARDS/AFP/Getty Images)
