Media bidding war starts for Guantanamo ex-detainee 2 hours, 13 minutes ago



SYDNEY (Reuters) - Australian David Hicks, the only Guantanamo Bay detainee convicted of terrorism charges, is at the centre of a worldwide media bidding war for his story, with a possible price tag of A$1 million (US$892,000), local media said.

Hicks, 32, has had 30 offers from television and publishing firms in Australia, the United States and Italy, his lawyer told The Australian newspaper.

Media analysts say Hicks' story could fetch A$1 million, the newspaper said on Friday, but Australian laws preventing people profiting from their crimes may deny Hicks any money.

Hicks' father, Terry, told The Australian that most of the money paid for his son's story would be donated to charity, but that he should keep some to compensate for his six years in prison.

    How is this helping the terrorist? Australian law says he won't get any of it, so he won't get any of it.

    yep...he wont get $1 of it!.what the smart * meanie will do is sign all the rights to his story to his father, who will then give it back to his son!
    he should have been shot when he was first caught!!!
    he`s not very popular here, i wouldnt be over surprised if he gets bumped off when things quiet down and everyone has forgotten all about him,...ive no doubt there are people keeping a close eye on him...payback is a *!...and it hurts too!![:(!]
