The FBI installed eavesdropping equipment in prison cells and visiting rooms at Guantanamo Bay, the military police commander of the prison said Wednesday, the Los Angeles Times reports .
The testimony by Army Col. John Vincent Bogdan incensed defense attorneys for five suspected Sept. 11 plotters because it appears the confidential meetings with defendants have been compromised by surveillance equipment hidden in smoke detectors and other areas, the LA Times reported.
Bogdan said he only recently discovered the equipment and didn’t know audio was captured.
Bogdan said he had been told there were “no audio monitoring of attorney-client meetings.”
“It is a key thing we want to make sure we are not doing,” he said.
