October 4 , 2014
A federal judge in the United States has ordered the videotapes showing force feeding of a Guantánamo Bay inmate to be released.
Judge Gladys Kessler ordered the government to make public versions of more than two dozen videos depicting Abu Wa’el Dhiab, a Syrian detainee, being forcibly fed via a tube inserted into his stomach through his nose.
Several media groups had applied for disclosure of the tapes’ unclassified version.
