A suspected terrorist detainee who had been held at Guantanamo Bay has requested that he no longer have his body searched before he enters a courtroom says a New York Criminal Lawyer. He argues that he was mistreated by the CIA while held at Guantanamo Bay, and every time he is searched it makes him flash back to the previous mistreatment he claims he received.
No official word has come down as to whether or not he was actually mistreated, but he has used the possibility to slow down the process of his trial, according to a New York Criminal Lawyer.
The detainee is presently the only prisoner from Guantanamo Bay to be tried in federal courts. A U.S. district judge has order a hearing into the claim, where the detainee would testify. Of course, in order to testify he would have to undergo a body search, which is the very thing he wants to avoid. One New York Criminal Lawyer has said that if the defendant does testify in open court it would be an unprecedented occasion for the public to hear and debate the treatment that prisoners received while being held on terrorist suspicions.
