US court calls Osama’s son-in-laws’ lawyers surveillance fears unfounded
Washington: A federal judge has declined to temporarily block U.S. government agencies from conducting special surveillance on lawyers representing Osama bin Laden`s son-in-law.
Earlier, Osama’s son-in-law Sulaiman Abu Ghaith`s lawyers had asked for a restraining order barring the federals from monitoring their calls under the surveillance program revealed last month by whistleblower Edward Snowden.
The New York Daily News reports that the attorneys were afraid of tipping off the federals on their defense strategies.
Osama`s son-in-law had stood by his father-in-law`s side in aftermath of the 9/11 terror attacks.
