Four former Iraqi detainees who say they were tortured at the notorious Abu Ghraib prison should be allowed to pursue their claims against the U.S. military contractor in charge of interrogating them, an attorney told a federal appeals court Tuesday.
A defense contractor whose subsidiary was accused in a lawsuit of conspiring to torture detainees at the infamous Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq has paid $5.28 million to 71 former inmates held there and at other U.S.-run detention sites between 2003 and 2007.
He said that is clearly the case here, not only because the prison was under U.S. control but also because many of the activities furthering the alleged conspiracy occurred domestically.
"We allege the corporate defendant was approached by military and civilian whistleblowers and ignored those complaints," Azmy said.
