Lawyer speaks out: Australian government complicit in Habib's torture

The Australian government was dealt a blow on July 7 when SBS TV's Dateline aired a damning report that provided compelling evidence that Australian Guantanamo Bay detainee Mamdouh Habib had been illegally transferred to Egypt, where he was severely tortured.

Dateline confirmed that the Australian government was aware that Washington had ordered Habib's removal to Egypt, but did nothing to stop it.

Green Left Weekly spoke to Habib's lawyer, Stephen Hopper, about the new evidence.
