September 2, 2010, New York, NY. The human rights group the International Justice Network and co-counsel filed papers recounting rendition and torture today in federal court in Washington, D.C. on behalf of three men who have been held at Bagram prison in Afghanistan without charge or trial for nearly eight years.  Continuing the men's four-year struggle to be allowed to challenge their detention, the papers seek permission to amend their original habeas corpus petitions to introduce disturbing new evidence regarding their treatment.  The new information includes revelations that the Obama administration has established a permanent detention facility at Bagram for the sole purpose of holding and interrogating men seized illegally from third countries around the world, and that one of the petitioners, Fadi al-Maqaleh, was tortured at Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq prior to being transferred to Bagram prison. more
