New rules for terror suspect trials

‘The US Defence Department has drafted a manual for trying detainees at the Guantanamo Bay jail that would allow terror suspects to be imprisoned, convicted and executed on the basis of hearsay evidence or coerced testimony. [..]

According to a copy of the manual obtained by The Associated Press, a terror suspect’s defence lawyer cannot reveal classified evidence in their defence until the government has had a chance to review it.’

Also – Hicks faces flawed system:

`Australian terrorist suspect David Hicks faces trial by a fundamentally flawed and unfair system, the Law Council of Australia says.’
