Guantanamo Suspect Must Submit to Strip Search

Guantanamo Suspect Must Submit to Strip Search 06 May 2010 The first man brought from the Guantanamo Bay military prison to face trial in U.S. civilian court must attend the opening of his trial, forcing him to submit to strip searches he has resisted, a judge ruled on Thursday. U.S. District Judge Lewis Kaplan ruled that Ahmed Khalfan Ghailani is competent to waive his right to be present for most court proceedings but said Ghailani must appear at least once at the start of trial... Ghailani has refused to voluntarily appear in court because doing so requires him to submit to a visual strip search that includes inspection of the rectal area. Such a search, according to expert testimony offered by his defense attorneys, triggers memories of CIA interrogations.
