Court Reinstates Most Serious Charge Against Abdullah al-Mujahir (the former Jose Padilla)

A federal appeals court overturned lower court judge, Marcia Cooke’s decision, reinstating the most serious charge against Abdullah al-Mujahir, formerly known as Jose Padilla.

The 11th circuit court in Atlanta has reinstated the only charge (conspiracy the murder, kidnap and maim people overseas) that carries the possibility of a life sentence.

All this brings the trial closer to its scheduled date of April 16, 2007. Padilla, 36, is charged with being part of a North American terror support cell that provided personnel, materiel and money to extremist Islamic causes. He and his co-defendants _Adham Amin Hassoun, 44, and 45-year-old Kifah Wael Jayyousi — have pleaded not guilty.
