Abu Qatada trial verdict delayed

[07-09-2014 02:47 PM]

Ammon News - AMMONNEWS - The judge in the trial of a radical Jordanian cleric accused of a 2000 plot to attack Israelis, Americans and other westerners has delayed issuing his verdict pending further examination of the case.
A decision on the charges against Abu Qatada was expected today but the judge said it will now be issued on September 24.

Abu Qatada, whose real name is Omar Mahmoud Mohammed Othman, has been described in courts in Britain and Spain as a senior al-Qaida figure in Europe who had close ties to the late Osama bin Laden.

An Amman court acquitted him in June of charges linked to a foiled 1999 plot to attack an American school there but reserved judgement on a second set of charges.
Abu Qatada was extradited from Britain last year.
