"911 Associate Is Sentenced in Germany to 15 Years" - NY Times

The article by Mark Lander is located at http://www.nytimes.com/2007/01/09/world/europe/09germany.html.

On Monday a German court "sentenced a friend of the September 11 hijackers to 15 years in prison for being an accessory in the murders of 246 people aboard the commercial planes used in the attacks."

The article states "The sentencing of the man, a Moroccan named Mounire el-Motassadeq, is a potentially decisive milestone in a complex and politically delicate case that has wended its way through the German courts for 5 years."

Apparently, he went to Germany in 1993 to study engineering and fell in with a "radical Islamic group in Hamburg that included two of the hijackers, Mohamed Atta and Marwan al-Shehhi, is one of only two people to be convicted in the 9/11 attacks. The other - Zacarias Moussaoui, a French citizen of Moroccan descent - is serving a life sentence in Colorado."

Mr. Motassadeq was first tried in 2003 and was found guilty of 3,066 counts of accessory to murder but that verdict was overturned on appeal and he was put on trial a second time.

It goes on to say that the German prosecutors struggled to make a case "in part because of what they said was a lack of cooperation from the United States in sharing evidence".

The article also said that his lawyer planned to appeal, either to the European Court of human Rights or by demanding a third trial in Hamburg based on new evidence and that he has already filed an appeal with the Federal Constitutional Court, the highest German court.

I sent an email today to Udo Jacob, the defense attorney. Indicating that it is my belief that for justice to be done, the United States should have to prove to the world that the hijackers actually carried out the 9/11 events.

I told him that some of the FBI's hijackers have been reported alive and well living in other countries, the FBI has no hard evidence that Osama bin Laden had anything to do with 9/11 and that the CIA shut down the division that was looking for Osama bin Laden.

I mentioned that members of the Bush Administration are suspected as having advance knowledge that the events were going to take place, and much more. I even went into the appearance of controlled demolition, lack of debris, bodies and luggage at the Pentagon and in Shanksville, PA.

I included links to the french website that is devoted to the pentagon http://0911.site.voila.fr/index.htm and a website where he could download videos http://www.question911.com/linksall.htm
I suggested that he at least watch "911: In Plane Site", "Loose Change 2E" (available in German), "911 Eyewitness" and 9/11 Mysteries - Part 1 - Demolitions".

I also told him my opinion of the official fairy tale, FEMA & NIST reports. I mentioned that there were a lot of organizations that were seeking to have a new independent investigation.

Great work

It would be an interesting project to see how the underlying crime was treated in this case and in the Moussaoui case in federal court in Virginia.

As far as I could see from press reports, in both cases they relied on summaries from the interrogation of alleged 9/11 planner Binnalsheeb (sic)

In this article, the NY Times say that "Mr. Motassadeq’s links to the hijackers were never in dispute."

That would be alleged hijackers, but why quibble over details like that?

Thanks Ningen

It will be very interesting.
Please note that they convicted him for the alleged 246 passengers & crew only.
To my knowledge a couple of those flights weren't even scheduled for that day and United 93 had originally been reported as landing safely in Cleveland airport.
Other hijackers have been reported seen alive...Why haven't they been arrested and tried ?
It is like guy has been set up to solidify the Official Fairy Tale report for Europe.


I can't believe this story hasn't exploded yet..!
