    Procedures of releasing Yemeni cleric (terrorist) in U.S. discussed
    [08/August/2009]

    SANA'A, Aug. 08 (Saba) - Yemen and US discussed here on Saturday the procedures to free Yemeni cleric Mohammed al-Moayad, 60, and his companion Mohammed Zayed, 35, and the related details to transport them to homeland.

    Foreign Minister Abu Bakr al-Qirbi and American ambassador to Yemen Stephen Seche also reviewed here several issues of the Yemeni detainees at Guantanamo and Bagram.

    The U.S. authorities decided last Friday to release Yemeni al-Moayad and Zayed detained at a U.S. prison in Colorado State.

    An official source at the Yemeni government said that the Yemeni embassy in Washington was informed by the U.S. authorities that they considered that the period spent by both al-Moayad and Zayed in prison was sufficient punishment for the charges against them.

    The source said that President Ali Abdullah Saleh has ordered his country's government to quickly transfer al-Moayad and Zayed to
    Yemen.

    In October 2008, a New York appeals court overturned the convictions of Sheikh Mohammed al-Moayad and Mohammed Zayed.

    According to the appeals court, the district court committed evidentiary errors that were sufficiently prejudicial as to deprive the defendants of a fair trial.

    In 2005, Sheikh al-Moayad and his aide Zayed were found guilty on eight charges stemming from the conspiracy, including providing funds to the Palestinian group Hamas. The two were acquitted on charges of providing material support to Al Qaeda.

    Sheikh al-Moayad was sentenced to 75 years in federal prison for conspiracy to finance terrorism and other related charges while Zayed was sentenced to 45 years. Al-Moayad has also been ordered to pay $1.2 million for his role in attempting to fund terrorist organizations.

    The prosecution encountered a major setback in the case when its star witness, one of the FBI informants in the sting operation, Mohamed Alanssi, set himself on fire in front of the White House in November 2004 in a bid for attention, claiming the FBI was neglecting his role in the case.

    We have been taking too many prisoners. The Justice Dept. has again demonstrated that it is totally incompetent when dealing with these people and the present administration won't allow the military to incarcerate them.
