Guantanamo criticized over inmate suicide

Latif suicideA report by the US military into the suicide of a Guantanamo detainee last year has criticised the facility's guards and medical staff for not following correct procedure.

Al Jazeera has obtained a copy of the report into the suicide of Adnan Latif, a 31-year-old Yemeni man who overdosed on anti-psychotic medication last September.
Latif was pronounced dead on September 8, 2012, the same day that his mother died, according to the report.

Investigators said military guards and medical staff at the prison treated Latif differently from other detainees because of his outstanding mental health issues, and in many cases did not follow established rules for handling difficult detainees.

The report indicates that this failure to follow standard operating procedures made it possible for Latif to hoard various medicines in his cell, and act that should have been all-but impossible.

The report calls for improved training and coordination among medical, legal, and intelligence staff by the Guantanamo commander.
