Witness testimony that was to be used in court by former Guantánamo detainee David Hicks suggests that prisoners were repeatedly drugged as part of the Bush administration’s “enhanced interrogation,” Natalie O’Brien of the Sydney Morning Herald reports.

Some documents provided by U.S. authorities at Guantánamo are to be kept secret, but defense affidavits confirmed that detainees were forced to take high dosages of the controversial anti-malaria drug mefloquine despite showing no signs of the disease, according to SMH.

Army doctor Remington Nevin told SMH that administering the drug in high doses to people who don’t have malaria would be akin to “pharmacologic waterboarding,” adding that high doses of the drug can cause brain injuries.

Josh Dratel, a Gitmo guard and New York lawyer who has top secret security clearance from the Justice Department, reportedly planned to provide evidence that several detainees were forced into ”non-therapeutic” drugging and that U.S. prosecutors had admitted to forcibly drugging Hicks.
