Trial to Start Monday for UofA Student Accused of Trying to Aid Terror Group

JUNE 9, 2006 - Posted at 8:14 a.m. CST

 

FAYETTEVILLE, AR - A man accused of trying to aid a terror organization is to go on trial in federal court in Fayetteville on Monday.

Arwah Jaber, a former University of Arkansas graduate student, is alleged by prosecutors of trying to aid the foreign terrorist organization Palestinian Islamic Jihad.

Magistrate Beverly Stites Jones said during a bond hearing last June that the government's case appears weak and that Jaber may be able to explain that his actions were legal.  Prosecutors want to keep the magistrate's statements from being introduced at trial.

Two weeks have been set aside for the trial in federal court in Fayetteville.
