Prosecution’s Psychiatrist: Marine Held in Mexico Has PTSD
The attorney for Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi said that the prosecution’s psychiatrist has interviewed the jailed Marine and has concluded that he has PTSD.
The psychiatrist also concluded that treatment is not available in Mexico, where Tahmooressi has been jailed since March 31.
Fernando Benitez, the lawyer for Tahmooressi, is admitting the finding into court today. Tomorrow, he could possibly file a new motion for a mistrial on humanitarian grounds.
Congress will also hold a hearing on the jailed Marine tomorrow.
Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-Fla.) went “On The Record” to discuss the hearing, slamming it as “outrageous” that the U.S. government hasn’t been able to sit down with the Mexican president to get Tahmooressi released.
