NOTICE OF MILITARY COMMISSIONS ACT OF 2006

Respondents hereby give notice that on October 17, 2006, the President signed into law

the Military Commissions Act of 2006, Pub. L. No. 109-___ (copy attached) (“MCA”). The

MCA, among other things, amends 28 U.S.C. § 2241 to provide that “no court, justice, or judge

shall have jurisdiction” to consider either (1) habeas petitions “filed by or on behalf of an alien

- 1 -

Case 1:05-cv-01429-UNA Document 63 Filed 10/18/2006 Page 10 of 11

detained by the United States who has been determined by the United States to have been

properly detained as an enemy combatant or is awaiting such determination,” or (2) “any other

action against the United States or its agents relating to any aspect of the detention, transfer,

treatment, trial, or conditions of confinement of an alien who is or was detained by the United

States” as an enemy combatant, except as provided in section 1005(e)(2) and (e)(3) of the

Detainee Treatment Act of 2005, Pub. L. No. 109-148, tit. X, 119 Stat. 2680 (10 U.S.C. § 801

note). See MCA § 7(a) (located on pages 36-37 of attachment). Further, the new amendment

1

to § 2241 takes effect on the date of enactment and applies specifically “to all cases, without

exception, pending on or after the date of the enactment of this Act which relate to any aspect of

the detention, transfer, treatment, trial, or conditions of detention of an alien detained by the

United States since September 11, 2001.” Id. § 7(b) (emphasis added). 2

Dated: October 18, 2006

Respectfully submitted,

PETER D. KEISLER
Assistant Attorney General

DOUGLAS N. LETTER
Terrorism Litigation Counsel

1

Section 1005(e)(2) of the Detainee Treatment Act provides that the United States Court

of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit “shall have exclusive jurisdiction to determine
the validity of any final decision of a Combatant Status Review Tribunal that an alien is properly
detained as an enemy combatant,” and it further specifies the scope and intensiveness of that
review. See Pub. L. No. 109-148, § 1005(e)(2). Similarly, § 1005(e)(3) of the Detainee
Treatment Act, as amended by the MCA, provides that the Court of Appeals for the District of
Columbia Circuit “shall have exclusive jurisdiction to determine the validity of any final decision
rendered by a military commission.” Id. § 1005(e)(3).

2

Counsel for detainees in certain of the pending Guantanamo detainee appeals,

Boumediene v. Bush, No. 05-5062 (D.C. Cir.), and Al Odah v. United States, No. 05-5064 (D.C.
Cir.), have requested the Court of Appeals to permit supplemental briefing regarding the effect of
the MCA.
