The Associated Press is reporting:
An Iraqi judicial committee has dismissed terrorism-related allegations against Associated Press photographer Bilal Hussein and ordered him freed after nearly two years in U.S. military custody.
The decision by a four-judge panel says Hussein’s case falls under a new amnesty law and orders Iraqi courts to “cease legal proceedings.” The ruling says that Hussein should be “immediately” released if no other charges are pending.
The ruling is dated Monday but AP’s lawyers were not able to thoroughly review it until Wednesday.
There is more to this story, believe me. Amnesty does not equal absolution.
