The investigation began after the military prison at Guantanamo Bay lawyers to provide the names and photographs of the CIA from unknown sources. As a result, the authorities managed to trace the relationship with a journalist who had received information from John Kyriacou. To avoid being sentenced to a longer term, and because of the inability to continue to pay for legal services, in October Kyriacou agreed to plead guilty to one of the five charges – violation of the law on the protection of information about employees of intelligence. He confirmed that he had sent an e-mail addressed to another agent, who was in a safe position, independent journalist, who later did not even published the data.
Some aspects of this case is of extreme concern. If John Kyriakou himself participated torture, he now would not have any problems, it is not even began to investigate. But as he told reporters on torture, his imprisoned. The fact that the U.S. government to classify everything that was related to the use of torture, that it was impossible for anyone to condemn the human rights violations that have regularly occurred in Guantanamo. That's what this says Kyriacou: "I'm going to jail. Butchers covering their lawyers and just people who hide their deeds, and those who destroy the film with evidence of torture, never brought to justice. This is the saddest thing in the whole of history "
The current U.S. administration has condemned more people divulged classified information than all previous governments combined, while protecting those who gave orders and tortured.
Contrary to popular belief, President Obama did not stop the use of torture in the U.S., he only stopped them for a period of his reign, by signing an executive order. This means that any subsequent president or vice-president will be able to issue a decree on the resumption of torture in the United States.
