Ziyad Yaghi and Mohammed Omar Aly Hassan: What the US Media is Hiding


Ziyad Yaghi and Mohammed Omar Aly Hassan: What the US Media is Hiding.

 

Yaghi’s defense attorney Boyle stated,

“The issue is not whether the evidence of their beliefs is inadmissible. That’s not our claim on this appeal. The issue is that those beliefs can not constitute the basis of an agreement…we respectfully submit an abuse of its discretion not to at least tell the jury that that can’t be the basis of a conviction.”

Boyce again,

“When the judge says the first amendment is not a defense…We’re not saying that actions are not prosecutable, what we’re saying is the mere belief or expression of one’s belief is not prosecutable. And when the judge did not give that instruction, it gutted our case significantly.”

Sherifi’s defense attorney Fisher ,

“Here, because of the hundreds if not thousands of pages of ideology, without any framework, I would contend , respectfully disagree with Mr. Kellhofer, that there was no plan to be the object of a conspiracy.”
