New York prosecutors are saying a life prison sentence is the only answer for the son-in-law of Osama bin Laden after he was convicted for his role as al-Qaida's spokesman after the September 11 attacks.
Lawyers for Osama bin Laden`s son-in-law and former spokesman have asked a judge to let them interview accused September 11 mastermind Khalid Sheik Mohammed prior to a terrorism trial scheduled to begin this month.
Osama bin Laden`s son-in-law and former spokesman gave a speech a few months after the Sep 11, 2001 terror attacks saluting them and warning that more strikes by al-Qaida were on the way, US prosecutors said.
The Obama Administration has defended its decision to go in for trial of Sulaiman Abu Ghaith, the son-in-law of Osama bin Laden and a former spokesman for al Qaeda, in a civil court in New York instead of those in Guantanamo Bay.
Sulaiman Abu Ghaith, the son-in-law of Osama bin Laden who once served as a spokesman for al-Qaeda, has been captured and brought to the US, where he pleaded not guilty at his arraignment in a court today after being charged with conspiracy to kill Americans.
