First Military Commission Conviction Reversed


First Military Commission Conviction Reversed

Center for Constitutional Rights (CCR)

WASHINGTON - Today, the U.S. Court of Military Commission Review (CMCR) vacated former Guantánamo prisoner David Hicks’s conviction in the military commissions for providing material support for terrorism. Hicks was the first prisoner to be convicted in a Guantánamo military commission and a party to CCR’s historic Supreme Court victory in Rasul v. Bush, which established that Guantánamo prisoners have a right to access U.S.



I understand that Tony Abbott, the despicable prime minister of Australia refuses to apologize for keeping Mr. Hicks in prison for no crime, no crime at all. No wonder even his own party is now disowning him!
