[JURIST] New allegations of torture against detainees at Guantanamo Bay [JURIST Hot Topic archive] have been made at the trial of five former detainees in Morocco [JURIST report]. The five Moroccan men, who were released by the US to local authorities last August, have all pleaded not guilty to charges of belonging to or assisting a criminal group that was preparing to commit terrorist acts. The defendants told the court that during their detention at Guantanamo Bay they were stripped naked and handcuffed before having dogs set upon them. They also said that they were blindfolded when they were made to sign statements while in custody in Morocco. This is the first time that former Gitmo detainees have been put on trial in an Arab country. BBC News has more.
