Dear Secretary of Defense,

Ammar al Baluchi faces the death penalty in connection with his imminent trial before a military commission at the US naval base at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba. He was charged with wiring money to men later involved in the hijackings of the planes used in the 11 September 2001 attacks. Ammar al Baluchi was held in secret CIA custody from 2003 to 2006 and was subjected to enforced disappearance and to torture and other ill-treatment. The locations where he was held during his three and-a-half years in CIA custody and the full range of his treatment during that time remains classified top secret. He was transferred to Guantánamo on 4 September 2006, where he remains today. According to his lawyers, Ammar al Baluchi displays symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder and traumatic brain injury as a result of torture and other ill-treatment while in CIA custody.

I would like to express my concern that the charges against Ammar al Baluchi and his co-defendants carry the death penalty. I would like to point out that international law prohibits the death penalty based on any trial that has not met the highest standards of fairness, and that the military commission trials do not meet such standards. Please ensure that the military commissions be abandoned in favour of trials in ordinary US civilian courts and that the pursuit of the death penalty be dropped in any case, whatever the trial forum. Please order a prompt, full medical assessment of Ammar al Baluchi’s physical and psychological injuries and related apparent mental disability which he developed as a result of torture. I am also appealing to you to ensure that Ammar al Baluchi receives all necessary medical treatment and rehabilitative care he requires and in accordance with his wishes.

Yours sincerely,
