Judge: U.S. hid witness's mental illness in Guantanamo cases


www.mcclatchydc.com

The Justice Department improperly withheld important psychiatric records of a government witness who was used in a "significant" number of Guantanamo cases, a federal judge has concluded.

The government censored parts of the records, but enough has been made public that it's clear that the witness, a fellow detainee, was being treated weekly for a serious psychological problem and was questioned about whether he had any suicidal thoughts. The witness provided information in the government's case for detaining Aymen Saeed Batarfi, a Yemeni doctor who the government announced last week it would no longer seek to detain.

In a little-noticed ruling last week, Judge Emmet Sullivan found that the witness's testimony in other cases could be challenged as unreliable.

Last week, during a court-hearing, Sullivan castigated government-shills for not turning over the proper medical records & he ordered department lawyers to explain why he should not cite them for "contempt of court".

Criminals try to get away with everything that doesn't belong to them (especially significant evidence & our freedoms).
