USA: Torturer becomes courtroom interpreter


Guantánamo Hearing Halted After Prisoners Recognize Interpreter from CIA Black Site

At Guantánamo, a pretrial hearing for suspects accused of helping plot the 9/11 attacks was halted Monday after prisoners recognized the courtroom interpreter from a CIA black site. One prisoner said he could not trust the interpreter because he worked with the CIA. A second prisoner also recognized the man, whom he accused of participating in his torture. In a statement, Amnesty International called the allegations “deeply unsettling,” adding “the courtroom at Guantánamo Bay is piling further injustice on top of impunity for torture.”
