Hicks to claim UK citizenship

Hicks has been charged with “material support for terrorism” and referred to trial by a special military commission at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, the Pentagon said.

In the meantime British Lawyer Stephen Grosz will bring an appeal before UK immigration courts in May in another bid to have the terror suspect granted UK citizenship.

Hicks was granted British citizenship in July last year but the British Home Secretary immediately took it away on national security grounds.

The US government has released other UK citizens from Guantanamo following pressure from the British government.

It is hoped that if Hicks were granted UK citizenship it would force the British government to also lobby for his release.

Mr Grosz told ABC radio today that Hicks had his British citizenship removed by the Home Secretary on the basis of statements the Australian made to UK security services in April

2003.

But he will argue those statements were obtained under coercion or through torture and should therefore be inadmissible.

Mr Grosz said statements about torture in Guantanamo Bay to be tendered in the UK case could have an impact on the military commission process.

“Assuming that the trial does go ahead I would certainly expect it would cast considerable doubt on the safety of any conviction which was obtained by the military commission if it were based on evidence that had been discredited in the United Kingdom after the hearing of very substantial evidence,” Mr Grosz said.

The British lawyer said he would detail allegations of beatings, threats by guards with guns, hooding, shackling, the use of drugs and sexual humiliation.

He will also give details of a practice known as “earthing” which is said to involve several armed marines rushing into a detainee’s cell to deliver a beating.

Mr Grosz claimed many of these beatings had been filmed.

“All these earthings are recorded on video and somewhere in the

United States in the department of defence there exists hours and hours of video evidence of these earthings,” he said.
