One of the only two people who has been tried and sentenced in connection to the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks is a free man again – and is heading back to his native Morocco.
Mounir el-Motassadeq boarded a flight in Frankfurt on Monday after his conviction more than a decade ago for being a member of a terrorist organization and accessory to the murder of the 246 passengers and crew on the four jetliners used in the attacks, FOX NEWS reports.
“It’s a good feeling to know that Mr. Motassadeq is out of the country,” Hamburg’s Interior Minister
El-Motassadeq’s legal case, German courts ruled that he was aware Mohammed Atta, Marwan al-Shehhi and Ziad Jarrah – three of the 9/11 hijackers – planned to take over and crash the planes to kill American’s.
They court said, according to the Associated Press, that el-Motassadeq aided to “watch the attackers’ backs and conceal them” by helping them keep up the appearance of being university students paying tuition and rent and transferring money which allowed them to carry out their terrorist plot.
El-Motassadeq admitted training at an Al Qaeda camp in Afghanistan but insisted that he knew nothing of his friends’ plans to attack the U.S.
The only other person sentenced in relation to 9/11 – co-conspirator Zacarias Moussaoui– has been serving a life sentence without parole in Colorado’s ADX Florence, the same facility that houses Boston bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, Unabomber Ted Kaczynski, and other Al Qaeda operatives, like “shoe bomber” Richard Reid.
Now he is a free man, to carry out even more hate and destruction.
