Qusay 'Abdel-Razaq Zabib, who was detained without charge or trial in Iraq for over two years, was released on 30 December 2010. Qusay was a former police officer from Tikrit in the north of Iraq. He was detained by US forces in July 2008 and held until March 2010, when Camp Taji, the prison in which he was held, was transferred by the US forces to the Iraqi government. Prior to this, the US forces had recommended his release to the Iraqi authorities.
