Gitmo Evidence to Be Made Public
Posted on Jun 2, 2009
On Tuesday, federal Judge Thomas Hogan ordered that the evidence regarding more than 100 Guantanamo Bay detainees be made public, rejecting the U.S. government’s request to keep the unclassified information secret. These sealed documents may reveal the government’s justification (or lack thereof) for the prisoners’ continued detention.
A US court has ordered the release of unclassified evidence relating to more than 100 Guantanamo Bay detainees.
Federal judge Thomas Hogan has given the US Justice Department until 29 July to release the documents or specify what information it wants kept secret.
