USA: Way of life, way of death: Capital charges referred against five former secret detainees
On 13 May 2008, the USA opened another chapter in its relationship with the death penalty when it referred capital charges against five Guantánamo detainees for joint trial by military commission. The five are accused of involvement in the 11 September 2001 attacks in the USA. The administration should turn to the existing federal courts for any trials of the detainees and release those who are not to be charged.
