Fr. Louie Vitale and Fr. Steve Kelly, represented by Bill Quigley, will face trial before a magistrate on charges of trespass and failure to obey an officer's orders for their nonviolent witness on Nov. 19, 2006 at Fort Huachuca. They attempted to give a letter of protest to the post commander of Fort Huachuca because of the leading role that the Fort has played in the development of the manuals advocating torture used at the SOA and current interrogation techniques being used by the Army.
Because the magistrate granted the prosecutor's motion inlimine, forbidding the defense from even mentioning issues related to torture, the Military Commissions Act, international law, etc. during the trial, these issues and more will be addressed at the public event October 16.
