Prosecutors Seek Delay in Guantanamo Case

October 25, 2003|From Times Wire Reports

Military prosecutors say they are so overworked they need to delay the case against a Muslim chaplain accused of mishandling secrets at the Guantanamo Bay prison for terrorist suspects, the chaplain's lawyer said.

Military trial rules require hearings for Capt. James Joseph Yee by Dec. 10, defense lawyer Eugene Fidell said. No hearings have been scheduled, and military prosecutors want that deadline delayed by another 45 days, Fidell said.
