The U.S. Supreme Court has said that it will not listen to former Guantanamo Bay prisoner, Abdul Rahim Abdul Razak al Janko, who claims he suffered torture and abuse during a seven-year detention.
The justices on Monday let stand a lower court ruling that threw out Abdul Rahim Abdul Razak al Janko’s claim for damages.
A federal judge ruled that Janko was an enemy combatant under federal law and therefore could not sue the federal government. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit affirmed.
Janko alleged that U.S. officials subjected him to torture and other physical and psychological mistreatment during his detention. He was released in 2009 after a federal court agreed that he was wrongly detained.
