CHICAGO — The alleged torture of terrorist detainees at Guantanamo prison, now has a Chicago connection.

According to London’s Guardian newspaper, there is evidence that former Chicago police detective Richard Zuley — one of commander Jon Burge’s men — tortured a detainee at Gimto during an interrogation in 2002.

The Guardian quoted an investigator as calling Zuley’s tactics “illegal” and “immoral.”

Zuley still faces a wrongful conviction lawsuit by a man who says Zuley framed him for a murder outside Wrigley Field two decades ago.

No comment from Zuley.
