article imageGerman court refuses to hear appeal to Sept 11 conviction

By Brandigal (Donna)     Jan 12, 2007 in Crime
The Highest court in Germany refused the appeal of the man accused of helping in the attacks that took place on September 11, 2001
Mounir el Motassadeq was convicted of being an accessory to the murder of the 246 passengers and crew on the four jetliners used in the 2001 attacks. A total of nearly 3,000 people died, many of them in the World Trade Center. He was given the maximum sentence of 15 years which is the highest he could get under German laws. Three years in custody will go against that sentence as well.
The appeal was denied by The Federal Constitutional Court in Karlsruhe. They said his rights were not violated.
The defense lawyer now is considering taking it to the European Court for Human Rights because he feels his clients basic rights were violated.
He admits to being friends with the three hijackers and training at the camp, but he says he knew nothing of the plans.
15 years is not alot if you ask me but under the German law it is all he could be given. I do not believe he did not know anything about the plans especially where he trained at the camp and was friends with the three.
