Australians Want to Disclose Abuse in Guantanamo

JURIST reports that Australia asks US to lift gag on terror suspect's lawyers:

Following claims that two Australian nationals were abused while detained at Guantanamo Bay, the Australian government has asked the US to lift a confidentiality agreement signed by lawyers for David Hicks that bars the attorneys from revealing details of the abuse at Guantanamo Bay. Australia has also asked for a psychological assessment of a second detainee, Mamdouh Habib, whom a former cellmate said has become mentally unbalanced after guards falsely told him that his wife and children have died.

It just gets worse.
