young de­tainee says he will boy­cott trial

Austin American-Statesman - - WORLD & NATION -

The youngest de­tainee at Guan­tá­namo Bay says he wants to fire his attorneys and plans to boy­cott his up­com­ing trial. Omar Khadr is ac­cused of throw­ing a grenade that killed an Amer­i­can sol­dier dur­ing a 2002 fire­fight at an al Qaeda com­pound in Afghanistan. The Cana­dian Press re­ported from a pre­trial hear­ing that Khadr said he has no hope of jus­tice from the tri­bunal sys­tem at the U.S. Navy base in Cuba. The 23year-old also said he re­jected a plea deal.
