Judge James Pohl halted this week’s preliminary hearings at Guantanamo after lawyers for the alleged terror plotters told the court that a member of the defense team had been visited and questioned by Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) agents. David Nevin, representing the self-proclaimed 9/11 mastermind Khaled Sheikh Mohammed, said the FBI probe had had a “chilling effect” on the defense team. After suspending proceedings in order to assess the extent of the claims, Pohl said Thursday it had been established that there had been “some type investigation by the FBI into Mr Mohammed’s team.”
