This is reportedly a Canadian citizen … 16 year old Omar Khadr … being questioned by Canadian officials regarding his involvement in the death of a US soldier in Afghanistan. Khadar is accused of throwing a greneade (in 2002) that killed the soldier. This interrogation is dated to 2003.
The footage was made public by Mr Khadr’s lawyers following a Supreme Court ruling in May that the Canadian authorities had to hand over key evidence against him to allow a full defence of the charges he is facing.
One of those lawyers, Dennis Edney, told the BBC his client was seen in a distressed state because he had been “abused” by his American guards.
“He was deprived of sleep by being removed from his cell and to another cell every three hours on a 24-hour basis for three weeks solid, followed by three weeks of deep solitary confinement,” Mr Edney told the BBC.
