Two of three former Guantanamo detainees have left Slovakia as, in addition to Egyptian Adeel al-Gazzar, Tunisian Rafiq al-Hami has now returned to his homeland, Interior Minister Daniel Lipšic told the TASR newswire.

“It was his free decision... several weeks ago he voluntarily left for Tunisia,” Lipšic said.

Lipšic confirmed that al-Hami was accepted by Tunisian authorities but added that nothing was known about him later.

Al-Gazzar was arrested after his arrival in Egypt and faces a new trial on past charges. To read more about this, please go to Egyptian detained after he returned from Slovakia .

“He was well aware of the consequences in Egypt, so it was his free decision,” the interior minister said, adding that all three former detainees had a legal right to stay in Slovakia but they had also remained citizens of their home countries and were free to leave and return home at anytime.

Lipšic did not know whether the third detainee, Poolad Tsiradzho from Azerbaijan, planned to return to his homeland.
