New York—Fahad Hashmi, an American citizen, has been kept in Severe solitary confinement at The Metropolitan Correctional Center in Lower Manhattan for two and half years awaiting trial. He is under 24-hour electronic surveillance, is allowed no fresh air or sunshine, and can receive no letters or visits, outside of limited contact with his parents. These conditions are typical of the how terrorism suspects are being treated in U.S. prisons and courts. Guantánamo is set to be closed next year – it is time NOW to end violations of due process and inhumane detention happening right here at home.
