Five Released from Guantanamo, Hicks Kept for Trial
The Pentagon is refusing to release Australian David Hicks, who is set to face a military tribunal trial in March. His military lawyer claims a double standard is being used. Hicks' Australian lawyer says his trial might not begin for another three years.
Amnesty International is calling upon the Government to reveal the terms of the deals made with Britain and Australia to secure the prisoners' release. It also wants an investigation into their claims of torture. Last August, David Hicks has filed an affidavit alleging abuse and mistreatment at Guantanamo, you can read it here.
