Retrial Begins for Woman Convicted of Terrorism Charges in the Netherlands

February 15, 2014

 

The case of Soumaya S – given a four year jail term in 2008 for terrorism, and about whose conviction there are now serious doubts – is now being heard in an Amsterdam court, according to the Telegraaf. The Supreme Court ordered a retrial of her case in 2011, following claims that justice ministry officials withheld crucial telephone recordings from the defence. Soumaya S’s lawyer claims that the recordings show she was not involved in a plot against Dutch politician as a member of the Hofstadgroep.
