Hicks lawyer acts for Habib

February 27, 2011 - THE former lawyer for convicted terrorism supporter David Hicks is now acting for Sydney man Mamdouh Habib in his quest to sue the US over his CIA-engineered rendition and torture in Egypt.

Stephen Kenny told The Sun-Herald he had already held talks with American lawyers about the best way to proceed with the action in the US courts. ''We need to keep pursuing these matters, otherwise in the future others could be at risk of it happening to them,'' he said.

Mr Habib was kidnapped in Pakistan after the attacks in the US on September 11, 2001. He was taken first to Egypt where he was tortured for more than six months. He was then taken to Guantanamo Bay where he was detained until 2005. He was released without charge. {continued}
