German court orders release of 9/11 suspect
Advertisements [?]
HAMBURG, Germany - The only Sept. 11 suspect ever convicted was freed by a Hamburg court Wednesday, his lawyers' offices said, after his guilty verdict on charges of aiding the suicide pilots was thrown out last month.

Mounir El Motassadeq, 30, has been serving a maximum 15-year prison term in Hamburg since a court in the city convicted him in February 2003 of giving logistical help to the Hamburg al-Qaida cell that included three of the Sept. 11 pilots.

An appeals court has ordered a retrial starting June 16, saying the Moroccan was denied a fair trial because the U.S. government refused access to a key witness in its custody.

Assistants at the offices of both of his Hamburg lawyers, Gerhard Strate and Josef Graessle-Muenscher, told The Associated Press they had received the court ruling ordering el Motassadeq's release.
