United States: Court requests access to classified information on Guantánamo Bay detainees

On 20 July, the DC Circuit Court ruled that the Government should allow the Court and defence lawyers to access all information available on Guantánamo Bay detainees, recognizing that lawyers have a “right to know”, except when the information is “highly sensitive”. The Court will issue a new “protective order” to ease lawyers’ access to their clients and prospective clients in the Guantánamo Bay detention center.
