DETROIT, Nov. 28 (UPI) -- A Moroccan immigrant held in a Detroit jail as a terrorist suspect for three years has sued, claiming that he was deliberately fed pork and humiliated.
Karim Koubriti's suit names Wayne County, five unnamed sheriff's deputies and one identified only as "Rojo," the Detroit News reported.
"The actions of the Wayne County Sheriff's Department were completely outrageous," said Koubriti's lawyer, Ben Gonek. "They only added more insult to the injuries he was already sustaining by the federal government."
Koubriti, in legal papers, claims he and four other alleged terrorists were strip-searched without need when other prisoners were only made to strip to their underwear. He said they were made to eat pork in spite of the Muslim dietary laws.
A spokesman for the county said pork has not been served in the jail for years and that security standards for federal prisoners are set by the U.S. marshals.
