Mustafa’s Attorneys Fight Restrictions

New York, N.Y. — Lawyers are unhappy with the pre-trial conditions of an accused terrorist who has an Oregon connection.

Mustafa Kamel Mustafa is accused of conspiring with Seattle men to set up an Al-Queda training camp in Bly. Mustafa’s attorneys say special administrative measures were imposed a week ago. The restrictions severely limit his communications and what he can read while in federal prison.

His attorneys say Mustafa’s lack of hands makes these restrictions even more severe. The Egyptian Islamic preacher pleaded not guilty to the training camp charges, as well as accusations that he helped abduct 2 American tourists and 14 other people in Yemen in 1998.
