Belton, Texas, solo John Galligan, who represents Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, the Army psychiatrist who allegedly went on a shooting spree at Fort Hood on Nov. 5, says he has learned the precise terms of his client’s pretrial confinement.
Hasan is paralyzed from the chest down and bedridden in a military hospital in San Antonio, says Galligan. He says the U.S. Army command has imposed rules that allow for a closed-circuit television camera in Hasan’s room for Hasan’s and others’ safety; bar visits from anyone except Hasan’s family members and his lawyers (Galligan and Hasan’s appointed military defense counsel, Major Christopher E. Martin) and limit those visits to one hour (Galligan does not know if this time limit is per day or per visitor); require all visitors to provide picture identification; restrict all communications with Hasan to English; and require that an interpreter be present if another language is spoken.
