UK ex-detainee tells European panel of Guantanamo abuse

[JURIST] Jamal al-Harith, one of four UK citizens released from detention in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, in March, told a Council of Europe investigating panel Friday that he was kept chained in painful positions, fed rotten food, repeatedly beaten, and subjected to psychological torture. The Council is working on a report on allegations of abuse and torture in the US detention facility and will make recommendations to governments concerning the proper European response. The panel intends to publish its report early in 2005. The Independent Record has more.
