Bin Laden Aide Denied Request to Question FBI, Witnesses at Resentencing

Osama bin Laden’s former secretary won’t be able to question FBI agents and witnesses during his resentencing, Bloomberg reports.

U.S. District Judge Lewis Kaplan on Tuesday denied the request of Wadih el-Hage, who is serving a life sentence for participating in a plot to kill Americans.

“My past experience with my lawyers is that they delay my requests to the last minute, then use that as an excuse not to do it, therefore I am writing this letter,” he told the judge.

The judge said el-Hage can’t handle case alone as long as he has an attorney.

“Given the aggressive representation of this defendant by his able counsel, this court declines to permit hybrid representation,” Kaplan wrote.
