Khalid Sheikh Mohammed - Prosecution in France

Prosecution in France

In France in 2009 it was decided to try Khalid Sheikh Mohammed in absentia on terrorism charges with respect to the Ghriba synagogue bombing on the Tunisian island of Djerba in 2002 which killed 14 German tourists, five Tunisians and two French nationals, together with captured German national Christian Ganczarski and Tunisian Walid Nawar. French judges chose to separate Khalid Sheikh Mohammed's case from that of Ganczarski and Nawar and try him at a later date.

Famous quotes containing the words france and/or prosecution:

    Intellectuals can tell themselves anything, sell themselves any bill of goods, which is why they were so often patsies for the ruling classes in nineteenth-century France and England, or twentieth-century Russia and America.
    Lillian Hellman (1907–1984)

    The prosecution of [Warren] Hastings, though he should escape at last, must have good effect. It will alarm the servants of the Company in India, that they may not always plunder with impunity, but that there may be a retrospect; and it will show them that even bribes of diamonds to the Crown may not secure them from prosecution.
    Horace Walpole (1717–1797)
