Lawyers for self-confessed September 11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed revealed they have asked the UN to investigate their client’s alleged torture at Guantanamo Bay military jail.
On the UN’s International Day in Support of Victims of Torture, Mohammed’s defense team revealed they had sent a “Letter of Allegation” to Juan Mendez, the UN Special Rapporteur on Torture.
The letter was sent on May 5 from Guantanamo, on the eve of Mohammed’s arraignment on charges for which he faces the death penalty.
