Germany: Supreme Court confirms acquittal in 9/11 case

On 9 June the Supreme Court confirmed the acquittal of Abdelgheni Mzoudi, a Moroccan national and member of the so-called Hamburg cell surrounding Mohammed Atta, one of the 9/11 highjackers. Abdelgheni Mzoudi was charged with aiding in the preparation of the 9/11 attacks. A lower court acquitted the accused for lack of evidence after being unable to examine a key witness in US custody. The US Government refused to release transcripts and intelligence information to the court.
