force feeding at gitoLawyers who spent the weekend examining 28 videotapes of a detainee at Guantánamo Bay being force-fed told a federal judge Wednesday they plan to submit the “extremely disturbing” set of tapes as evidence of rights abuse at the base.

“I’ve had a lot of trouble sleeping this week as a result of watching these tapes,” Alka Pradhan, a member of the legal team representing Syrian national Abu Wa’el Dhiab, told Al Jazeera. She said the footage gave an insight into conditions at the controversial camp and that President Barack Obama should “sit down and watch” it.

In addition to submitting the footage as part of their case, Dhiab's attorneys informed the D.C. District Court that they will also file a motion by the end of the week seeking interviews with several Guantánamo officials — including the senior medical officer at the camp and Army Col. John Bogdan, a Guantánamo prison commander.

The hearing Wednesday was part of a lawsuit that alleges Dhiab and other detainees are being subjected to inhumane force-feedings and treatment during their participation in a hunger strike to protest their detainment.
