Rasmea Odeh, Convicted Terrorist, Agrees To Leave US
|Rasmea Odeh and Angela Davis|
Odeh plans to plead guilty to unlawful procurement of naturalization in a deal that will allow her to leave the US rather than face the possibility of an 18-month prison-sentence.
The Washington Times reports that Odeh is scheduled to undergo “another trial after a U.S. appeals court vacated her 2014 conviction, saying an expert witness should have been allowed to testify that she suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder from allegedly being tortured in prison when she gave false answers.”
A statement made on the websites Justice for Rasmea and the U.S. Palestinian Community Network read: “The prosecution team is now under the regime of racist Attorney General Jeff Sessions, and a new superseding indictment re-frames this as a case about ‘terrorism’ rather than immigration… There is the great likelihood that a jury would be prejudiced by hearing the Zionist assistant U.S. Attorney Jonathan Tukel call Rasmea a ‘terrorist’ and her supports ‘mobs and hordes,’ as he has done many times before.”
She is scheduled to appear in court April 25 in Detroit.
