As debris and particulate matter delivered to the Staten Island landfill from Ground Zero becomes finer, along with the need to search for smaller items of evidentiary value, the number of police officers assigned to the Fresh Kills landfill for forensic recovery duty was increased on December 18th by fifty, bringing the total uniformed headcount to 2 lieutenants, 10 sergeants, and-100 police officers daily. On Wednesday, December 19, 2001, at 12:30 p.m., a Funeral Mass was held for Police Officer Glen Petitt of the Police Academy at St. John Nepomucene, 1140 Locust Avenue, Bohemia, New York. Today, the wake for Police Officer Ramon Suarez of Transit District 4 will be held at the Hess-Miller Funeral Home located at 64-19 Metropolitan Avenue, Middle Village, New York. Viewing times are 2:00 pm to 5:00 pm and 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm. On Saturday, December 22, 2001, at 10:00 am, the Funeral Mass will be held at St. Matthias Roman Catholic Church, 58-15 Catalpa Avenue, Ridgewood, New York. On December 17th, Britain's highest court, the Law Lord's of the House of Lords, ruled there is no legal bar to the extradition of Khaled Al Fawwaz, Ibrahim Eidarous and Adel Abdel Bary from England to the United States to face murder and conspiracy charges relating to their roles in the 1998 bombings of the United States Embassies in Kenya and Tanzania. The near simultaneous bombings killed 224 people and wounded over 5,000 others. The three men have also been named, along with 14 others, in a federal indictment filed in the United States District Court for the

Southern District in Manhattan with being members of Usama Bin Laden's Al Qaeda terrorist network and for their roles in supporting his terror network in England. The charges could result in the death penalty for the three men. Among the ev.dence presented in the latest extradition proceeding was a fax sent to London from an Al Oaeda official before the bombings, explaining how Al Qaeda should claim responsibility for the attacks after they occur. The fax was addressed to Al Fawwaz and the fingerprints of both Eidarous and Abdel Bary were found on the document. The three men were arrested in England in 1999 and have been fighting an American extradition request in the British legal system for the last three years. The next step in the process is for British Home Secretary David Blunkett to draft a formal extradition order Then Al Fawwaz and his two associates can go back to court and challenge that order, setting off another round of appeals through the British courts. After this ast attempt to avoid extradition is exhausted, the three men can still challenge the ^tradition in the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg Austria. These appeals could delay the extradition another year or more. The member nations of the European Union consider the death penalty a violation of fundamental human rights and could demand the United States agree not to seek the death penahy for the three men before allowing extradition. The specter of secret military trials for suspected ^onsts has also been a source of friction between the United States and the European Union. The European Parliament, speaking-for the 15 member nations of the European Union, issued a resolution saying no extraditions will be allowed from any member country unless the United States agrees the suspect will not be subject to fe feath Penalty or to secret military trials. The three men will most likely be tried ^New York City at the United States District Court for the Southern District. Four other defendants from the Embassy bombings were convicted in May of this year and sentenced to life in prison on October 18 .
