Hicks was forcibly sedated, says lawyer

DAVID HICKS was left frightened and confused after being forcibly sedated at Guantanamo Bay last month and then told of new charges the prosecution wanted to bring against him, his US military defence lawyer, Major Michael Mori, has said.

A man of extraordinary courage

Michael Mori was appointed Defense counsel for David Hicks in November 2003, some two years after Hicks had first been interned. … Michael Mori is indeed something of a modern day Atticus Finch. His passion for the law is apparent in his defense of his client, and his defense of the law itself, which was under attack from men who wished to subvert the accepted standards of legality for their own ends. Whatever one might think of Major Mori’s client (and I for one think he was fairly naive and foolish to end up in Afghanistan), there is no doubt that the lawyer in this case was not a military stooge; he was man who has a deep commitment and, indeed, love of his chosen profession. His integrity, honour and compassion were apparent as he spoke out against the inherent bias of the proposed military tribunal system. What cost this might bring to the Major in years to come is yet to be seen, but the vitriol shown by Colonel ‘Mo’ Davis, the chief US prosecutor, makes it hard to believe that Major Mori has not killed his own career in the process of defending Hicks...
