The Associated Press reports a Guantanamo prisoner balked at working with his defense lawyers due to a possible conflict of interest Wednesday, prompting an indefinite recess in his pretrial hearing in Cuba. Abd al-Hadi al-Iraqi told the military judge Wednesday he wished to stop conferring with the two lawyers assigned to his case, at least temporarily. During the recess, prosecutors will try to arrange a meeting between al-Hadi and one of his former attorneys in hopes of resolving the issue. “Regrettably, we’re in a little bit of a limbo,” said the judge, Navy Capt. J. Kirk Waits. The possible conflict involves a former defense team member, Marine Corps Lt. Col. Sean Gleason, who was reassigned in 2013 to another Guantanamo prisoner, Mustafa Hawsawi. Prosecutors turned over to al-Hadi’s lawyers some documents earlier this week regarding conversations the prisoners had in 2007 that contained statements harmful to al-Hadi’s defense, said defense attorney Marine Lt. Col. Thomas Jasper.
