February 18, 2012, New York –Yesterday, the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals denied a request for rehearing in the case USA v. El-Mezain, et al. The defendants are five former officers and employees of The Holy Land Foundation (HLF), an organization that provided humanitarian aid to Palestinians in the West Bank until closed down by the government in 2001. They had requested a rehearing of the court’s earlier denial of their appeal of convictions for conspiracy to provide material support and other charges.
“The farther this case goes, the more we are encouraged to fight for justice. We’re proud Americans just like anyone else, and we all believe that the Constitution should be upheld, even if it means going to the Supreme Court. These men are innocent and this case is not over! We will continue to climb these rocky mountains until justice is served to all.”
