Court Hearing Tomorrow on Release of Guantánamo Force-Feeding Videos

NEW YORK - The Obama Administration will tomorrow (Friday) seek to persuade a US appeal court not to release videos showing prisoner abuse at Guantánamo Bay.

The federal hearing in Dhiab v Obama, at 9.30 am in Court 11 in D.C.'s Court of Appeals, stems from a 2014 challenge by Guantánamo's hunger strikers of the conditions of their detention. As part of that case, lawyers for lead petitioner Abu Wa'el Dhiab filed as sealed evidence hours of classified footage of Mr Dhiab being violently removed from his cell and abusively force-fed by the military authorities.
