Australian Guantanamo Ex-Detainee Appeals Conviction - 07 Nov 2013
Recent and archive images of former Guantanamo Bay detainee David Hicks. Australian Hicks was so desperate to get out of the Guantanamo prison that he
pleaded guilty under duress to a charge that was not actually a war crime, his lawyers said in an appeal filed on Tuesday.

Hicks, now 38 and free in Australia, was captured in Afghanistan in December 2001 and was among the first group of prisoners sent to Guantanamo when the detention camp opened on January 11, 2002. He admitted to training at paramilitary camps in Afghanistan, but said he saw no evidence of terrorism activity. The U.S. government says they were Al Qaeda camps.

David Hicks, formally charged on Wednesday with war crimes by a U.S. military tribunal, pleaded not guilty. David, a 29-year-old convert to Islam who was arrested during the U.S.-led war in Afghanistan in late 2001, sat stone-faced through a daylong hearing as his lawyers challenged whether the panel could try him fairly on charges of plotting attacks against America and its allies. He is among the first four suspected al Qaeda fighters held at a remote U.S. naval base at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, to face criminal charges of conspiring to commit war crimes, and the second to appear before a military tribunal this week for pretrial hearings.
