Khadr's U.S.lawyer, Jon Jackson, confirmed the news in an email exchange with QMI Agency.
The 26-year-old Toronto native had pleaded guilty to war crimes charges in 2010 in exchange for an eight-year sentence.
Earlier this week, Public Safety Minister Vic Toews denied a report that Khadr would return to Canada by November. Toews said it could take another nine months to review the tapes and Khadr's file.
Khadr's lawyers have accused the government of dragging its feet, but Toews attempted to refocus some of the blame for the delays back to the Americans. Though Khadr applied to be transferred to Canada last year, the Americans only approved that transfer May 23.
Khadr has been held at the U.S. military base of Guantanamo Bay since 2002, following his capture during a firefight in Afghanistan during which U.S. combat medic Christopher Speer was killed.
