Defense lawyers for five men accused of conspiring in the September 11, 2001, attacks asked a judge to halt a pretrial hearing in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, on Monday over concerns that FBI agents are investigating them.
Earlier this month, two FBI agents approached a defense team member and asked him “to sign an agreement,” said Jim Harrington, an attorney for Ramzi Bin al Shibh, a Yemeni man accused of wiring money to the 9/11 hijackers.
Harrington said the member of his defense team would need to be replaced and called the episode “a chilling experience for all of us.”
