USA: Where is the accountability? Health concern as charges against Mohamed al-Qahtani dismissed
On 13 May 2008, the US Department of Defense announced that capital charges sworn against Guantánamo detainee Mohamed al-Qahtani in February 2008 had been dismissed. His physical and mental health have long been a cause for concern following his torture and other ill-treatment during interrogation in Guantánamo, and his continuing detention. The USA should release Mohamed al-Qahtani unless it promptly recharges him and brings him to trial in accordance with international fair trial standards in an independent and impartial court.
