Terror suspects' trials are 'unfair' , say judges

PUBLISHED January 10, 2005

The secret hearings into the jailing of 11 alleged foreign terrorists are unfair to the defendants, the senior judges overseeing the hearings have admitted.

The judges have claimed the men - all detained without charge as alleged members of al-Qa'ida under emergency powers - are at a clear disadvantage because they have been unable to see the secret evidence and allegations used against them.
