Reuters: Australia wants new charges for Guantanamo inmate
Australia wants new charges for Guantanamo inmate

Aug 15, 2006 SYDNEY (Reuters) - Australian Guantanamo Bay inmate David
Hicks should face new charges before a U.S. military tribunal by November or
be returned home, the Australian government said on Tuesday.

Lawyers for Hicks, who has been held at the U.S. camp in Cuba for four years,
have called for his release after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in June that
planned military trials for Guantanamo inmates were illegal.

U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales said on August 2 that plans were being
drafted to try enemy combatants based on military court martial procedures,
with a number of key changes.

Gonzales's Australian counterpart, Philip Ruddock, said he believed new charges
would likely be brought against Hicks but added Canberra would seek his return
if they were not, just as they had done with Mamdouh Habib, another Australian
Guantanamo inmate.
