The military’s highest court will review the case of former Army Cpl. Charles Graner Jr., the only service member still imprisoned for detainee abuse at Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq.
The Feb. 12 decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces comes nearly a year after the former guard’s attorney petitioned the court for review.
Graner was sentenced in 2005 to 10 years in prison for his role in the Abu Ghraib scandal. He was portrayed as the ringleader of the abuse and was charged with knocking out a detainee and stacking naked detainees in a human pyramid, among other infractions.
The court said it will consider whether trial judge Col. James Pohl erred by not disclosing memos approving “enhanced interrogation tactics” by guards at Abu Ghraib and by excluding certain expert testimony.
