The Supreme Court has rejected a new appeal from the Chinese Muslim detainees at Guantanamo Bay who want the government to give them a 30-day notice of where they will be sent when they are released.

The Chinese Muslims, or Uighurs (pronounced WEE'-gurz), and detainees from other countries want to be able to challenge their transfer if they could be sent to countries where they have a reasonable fear of torture, or even continued confinement.

The government says it already has a policy against sending detainees anywhere they are likely to be tortured or imprisoned at the request of the United States.
