Altaf Shakoor | 10 years ago | Reply | Recommend Aafia is innocent. She was abducted from Karachi in 2003. After 5 years of disappearance, she was found by Yvonne Ridley - a UK journalist and human right activist in Bagram. From Bagram she was transfered to N.Y. She was tried in NY on a charge committed by her (as they claim) in Afghanistan. No international law permits a trial in a country other than the place where crime was committed. This Aafia case, has exposed the American Judicial system - where you can get any thing other than justice. Shame on USA and its so called democracy and justice system. www.freeaafia.org (for details).
