Synopsis:

Details: The newspaper Europa Press, in Palma de Mallorca, Spain, published the following article on April 9, 2 003;jr,y$:«-•••••• ••• - Attorney Miguel 111 Ferrer,--the-defense--lawyer for AHMED BRAHIM, the alleged financial brain of Al Qaeda in Spain, announced this morning that he will present an appeal before the European Human Rights Court of Appeals in Strasbourg, so his client can be released on parole. Attorney 111 Ferrer announced that he would present the appeal after the Constitutional Court dismissed the appeal for legal protection that BRAHIM presented. Since his arrest at his residence in Barcelona last April, BRAHIM, 58 years old, has been waiting for trial for a year in the Alcala de Meco Penitentiary. His defense attorney explains that BRAHIM is being connected to MANDHU SALIM, a Sudan citizen, a.k.a. ABU HAGER, who allegedly was the financial brain of the Al Qaeda terrorist group.

Apparently, AHMED BRAHIM, whom at the time lived in Palma de Mallorca, invited ABU HAGER to his residence, and that is why the intelligence services suspected his connection to Al Qaeda. However, 111 Ferrer wanted to state, "there is no proof that my client is connected to the terrorist group." END OF TRANSLATION.
