Hicks’s lawyer says US must abide by Geneva Convention

The lawyer representing the alleged Australian Taliban fighter, David Hicks, is calling on the International Red Cross to now put pressure on the United States to abide by the Geneva Convention at their Guanatanamo Bay facility in Cuba.

Mr Hicks and another Australian Mamdouh Habib have been held in military custody without charge for more than a year.

In a US court-case earlier this month, the judges ruled the military base was not part of US territory.

Mr Hicks’s lawyer, Stephen Kenny, says the United States has been quick to talk about the Geneva Convention regarding their own soldiers imprisoned in Iraq.

“I call on the International Red Cross to immediately review what’s happening in Guantanamo Bay and insist that the American Government stop treating people in clear violation of the Geneva Convention,” Mr Kenny said.
