Terrorism Defendant Hossain Wants Sleepover For Labor Day, US OKed on Eid But Not Now

By Matthew Russell Lee, Thread, Patreon Song

SDNY COURTHOUSE, September 2 – Iranian banker Ali Sadr Hashemi Nejad had been on trial, charged with money laundering and violating US sanctions including through a Venezuelan infrastructure project. It has devolved into a show of discovery violations by the US Attorney's Office, echoed in another case, US v. Delowar Hossain, 19 Cr. 606 (SHS)

   It's been set down for trial: "ORDER as to Delowar Mohammed Hossain: The Court has been advised that the Ad Hoc Committee on the Resumption of Jury Trials has scheduled the trial of this matter to commence on Wednesday, September 29, 2021. Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that: 1. The final pretrial conference is adjourned from August 2 to September 24, 2021, at 12:00 p.m. in Courtroom 23A; and 2. The trial of this action is scheduled for Wednesday, September 29, 2021, at 9:30 a.m. (Signed by Judge Sidney H. Stein on 6/4/2021)."

  Back on July 20, Judge Stein respecting the practice of religion granted Hossain a modification of bail conditions, to leave his home at 4 am to attend a religious ritual at a butcher shop "to celebrate Eid al-Adha, an Islamic holiday that commemorates Abraham's near sacrifice of one of his sons at God's behest."

But now on September 2, Hossain through Federal Defenders has asked for Labor Day weekend sleep-over at the home of Mohamed Chowdhury (and Mariam Khandakar) and they note, "The Government has objected to this modification." Watch this site.

  The case is US v. Hossain, 19-cr-606 (Stein)
