Description

Amnesty International has asked US authorities to take better care of one of the alleged ringleaders of 9/11 attacks whose health is rapidly deteriorating at the Guantanamo Bay prison. Amnesty says Mustafa al-Hawsawi is in desperate need of medical care since he’s suffering from immense physical pain. The rights organization speculates that the Saudi inmate’s physical problems have been the result of torture at the hands of CIA agents. Amnesty also says Hawsawi has received only minimal treatment. But the Pentagon claims all detainees receive the care they need. Amnesty in its letter to the US Defense Department argues that depriving inmates of medical treatment contradicts Washington’s international legal obligations.
