Yemeni Methyl Dealer Got Cooperation Deal Then Untaxed Cigarettes So SDNY Sentencing

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Nov 4 – Redhwan Alzanam was charged with conspiracy to distribute methyl ester / 5F-ABD.

Then he became a government cooperator - until that was revoked when he was arrested buying untaxed cigarettes in Pennsylvania, presumably for re-sale in the New York City deli he worked in.   

On November 4 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Richard M. Berman began his sentencing. Inner City Press covered it.

   Judge Berman asked about where Alzanam had been living and working - with relatives, including an uncle who was his apparently abusive father's partner in the deli.

Reference was made to the dangers of Yemen, though Saudi Arabia's air strikes were not specifically mentioned.  

Finally it was decided to continue the sentencing on November 16.

The case is US v. Alzanam, 19-cr-364 (Berman)
