(NEW YORK) — Nearly 15 years after the attacks on September 11th, five men who are suspected of plotting the attacks will face a military judge on Tuesday in Guantanamo Bay.

Victims and victims’ families hoping for swift justice may be disappointed, however.

A trial date is not expected even though the alleged mastermind, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, confessed his involvement. Officials are worried over what prosecution evidence the defendants are entitled to see and when, and the hearings could determine a timeline.

Legal experts tell ABC News if the process continues the way it’s been going, it could push a trial date another decade or more.
