That's a different case, obviously. IIRC that guy was known to be autistic/Asperger's syndrome or something like that before he ever got into trouble - or so they say.
But in the case of Abu Hamza, the whole chain of Brit courts and then even the ECHR (the top of the whiner food chain, as it were) nixed his pleadings and appeals. This last-ditch effort is too obviously pathetic, and doomed. (Or so I hope - for once, everyone wants him gone and tried in the US.)
But that was before he announced that he was depressed.His lawyer goes before the ECHR (assuming British courts rule against him) and says my client is deeply depressed by the prospect of being tortured at Gitmo.We all know that the Americans routinely torture..we've seen the photos,we've heard the eyewitness accounts.His fear is absolutely well founded.His depression also renders him incapable of assisting his own lawyers,something fundamental to human rights and something that American military courts will ignore".
Ten bucks says that the ECHR will buy this argument.
