Military Judge Denies Request To Delay Sept. 11 Case At Guantanamo
Originally published on Fri February 3, 2012 4:51 pm
A request for a delay in the Sept. 11 case at Guantanamo has been denied.
Two lawyers close to the proceedings tell NPR that a military judge denied their request to delay the arraignment of the Sept. 11 suspects at Guantanamo until the summer.
The lawyers were asking for more time to file memos on why Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and his alleged co-conspirators should not be tried in a capital case and be eligible for the death penalty. The 911 suspects are expected to be arraigned before a military commission as early as April.
