Pakistani charges mental torture at Guantanamo hearing

AFP
Wednesday May 16, 2007 

A Pakistani resident of the United States charged he has been "mentally tortured" by his jailors at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba and attempted suicide by chewing on an artery, a transcript released Tuesday said.

Majid Khan presented a "Statement of Torture" to a military tribunal at Guantanamo that is reviewing his status as an "enemy combatant," with a torrent of complaints over his treatment since arriving at Guantanamo in September.

Khan's complaints ranged from how guards took away baby pictures of his daughter to the unscented soap at the prison, noisy fans and half inflated balls in the recreation room that "hardly bounce."

"I swear to God this place in some sense worse than CIA jails," he said, according to the transcript. "I am being mentally tortured here."

Portions of the statement that referred to his treatment while in CIA custody overseas were censored.

An unclassified summary of evidence presented against Khan at the hearing alleged that while in Pakistan Khan tried to obtain a travel document through a friend that would have allowed him to reenter the country to commit a terrorist act.
