Wiggin and Dana Attorney Interviewed Live on BBC-TV News

January 11, 2005
Jonathan Freiman, an attorney in the national appellate practice group at Wiggin and Dana, was interviewed live by BBC anchor Eddie Mair on Tuesday, January 10, 2005.  In the context of the release of five United Kingdom detainees from the American detention center at Guantanamo Bay, the BBC questioned Mr. Freiman about the legal basis for the prolonged detention and reported mistreatment of foreign nationals at Guantanamo.  Mr. Freiman was counsel of record on a bipartisan amicus brief submitted to the U.S. Supreme Court in the landmark Guantanamo Bay case of Rasul v. Bush.  The brief successfully argued that foreign nationals held abroad have the right to have their detention reviewed by a fair and neutral decisionmaker.
