The Muhammad Salah Trial is in Session

December 8, 2006


The Muhammad Salah trial is open to the public. Your courtroom attendance is encouraged.

Why: The Muhammad Salah Trial is of immense importance for supporters of anti-torture, due process, and rule of law. It marks the first case where an American court has allowed the prosecution of an American citizen based on an admission obtained under torture in a foreign country and in a language the defendant does not understand.

Mr. Muhammad, a long time Chicago-land resident, was arrested, tried, and jailed for several years while administering charitable aid to victims of the war-ravaged Palestinian territories. He was accused by the Israeli government of supporting terrorism.

For many observers, the Muhammad Salah case amounts to political persecution.
