Report: CAIR Lawyer Slams Rapid Investigation of Terror Attack

Latest news

    A lawyer who says he represents the Muslim immigrant family of Akayed Ullah, the alleged New York subway bomber, has reportedly slammed the city’s fast-track investigation into the jihad attack on commuters.

    According to ABC 7 New York:

    Albert Fox Cahn, the legal director for CAIR New York, read a short, prepared statement on behalf of the Ullah family saying, “We are heartbroken by the violence that was targeted at our city today, and by the allegations being made against a member of our family. But we are also outraged by the behavior of law enforcement officials who have held children as small as four years old out in the cold and who held a teenager out of high school classes to interrogate him without a lawyer, without his parents. These are not the sorts of actions that we expect from our justice system, and we have every confidence that our justice system will find the truth behind this attack and that we will, in the end, be able to learn what occurred today. Thank you for your time.”

    CAIR New York is an affiliate of the D.C.-based Council on American-Islamic Relations. The CAIR group was named as an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation trial and Hamas financing case that resulted in the FBI discontinuing its working relationship with the organization. In 2009, a federal judge concluded that the government had found “ample evidence” to link CAIR with Hamas. CAIR has also been declared a terrorist organization by the United Arab Emirates.

    Police officials say they need to conduct quick investigations after jihad attacks to detect and stop any pending attacks.
