Description DEFENDING THE DETAINEES: A Personal Account from a Guantanamo Lawyer How do we fight torture and illegal detention? How do we restore the role of law? When will Guantanamo finally close? TCC member Jonathan Hafetz is a civil and human rights attorney with the National Security Project of the American Civil Liberties Union. He has represented numerous detainees held without charge at Guantanamo and other U.S.-run prisons in the "war on terror" and was lead counsel in the landmark habeas corpus case of Ali al-Marri, one of two individuals arrested and held in the U.S. as an "enemy combatant". He is co-editor of The Guantanamo Lawyers and this fall will be joining the faculty of Seton Law School as a law professor.
