Two days after the U.S. and Iran began a prisoner exchange, two of the three Iranians who remained in the U.S. after being granted clemency had conditions attached to their clemencies. The legal status of the third individual was unclear.

Kambiz Attar Kashani was released from a federal prison in Michigan on Monday after receiving a presidential commutation of his sentence, while Kaveh Lotfolah Afrasiabi received a presidential pardon as he awaited trial on federal charges. The clemencies for both men, signed by President Joe Biden, had similar conditions attached.

Amin Hasanzadeh, a third Iranian identified by Tehran as being part of the prisoner swap. The latest publicly visible filing on Hasanzadeh’s court docket is from August 23, when his lawyers notified a judge that their client’s U.S. permanent residency had expired on that date.

The other two Iranians granted clemency by the U.S. under the deal, Mehrdad Ansari and Reza Sarhangpour Kafrani, arrived in Tehran late Monday after being flown to Qatar earlier in the day.
