Will 9/11 Guantanamo trials be fair?


Military commission trials of a number of people accused of masterminding 9/11 are due to begin soon at Guantanamo Bay, but there are questions about how fair the trials will be.

The Chief Military Prosecutor in Guantanamo, Brigadier-General Mark Martins, said that his mission is "to fairly prosecute" and he believes that these commissions provide all of the judicial guarantees "recognised as indispensable by civilised people".

Although he said the trials would be "open" he added that some statements may be "narrowly tailored" in order that certain information remains classified.
