Trump Administration Tries First Foreign Terror Suspect Extradited to US
WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — President Donald Trump's administration made the right decision to try al-Qaeda terror suspect Ali Charaf Damache in a US federal court rather than taking him to Guantanamo detention facility in Cuba, Human Rights First said in a press release.

"The Trump Administration today made the smart decision to use trusted and tested federal courts to handle this terrorism suspect," the release stated on Friday. "Federal courts have a proven record of being able to handle complex international terrorism cases while avoiding the legal and policy mess that we’ve seen at Guantanamo for well over a decade."

In 2011, the US government indicted Damache on one count of conspiracy to provide material support to terrorists and one count of attempted identity theft to facilitate international terrorism.

Earlier in the day, the Department of Justice announced Damache, an Algerian-born citizen of Ireland, has made his first appearance in the court after being sent from Spain to face the charges.

The rights group noted the federal civilian criminal courts have charged over 580 persons on terrorism-related charges since 9/11.
