Lawyers for Guantánamo Prisoner Challenge Judge’s Order Permitting Use of Info Obtained by Torture

HeadlineJun 04, 2021

The lawyers for a Saudi man imprisoned at Guantánamo Bay are asking a court to reverse a decision by a military judge to permit information obtained through torture by CIA interrogators. Lawyers for Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri say he was tortured for four years at multiple “black sites” around the world. Nashiri is accused of plotting the attack on the U.S.S. Cole off the coast of Yemen in 2000, which killed 17 sailors; he is facing the death penalty. Nashiri’s defense says that, if permitted, it would be the first time evidence obtained through torture would be used in such a case.
