Evidence Against Idaho Terrorism Suspect May Be Deemed Classified
The judge presiding over the upcoming trial of a 30-year-old man accused of terrorism plots in Idaho might make the evidence off-limits to the general public!
Judge Edward Lodge appointed a "classified information security officer" to oversee evidence in the scheduled trial of 30-year-old Fasliddin Kurbanov. He is a Uzbek national accused of plotting terrorism activities in Idaho and Utah. The crimes center around him allegedly helping teach people how to build bombs to be used against various types of public transportation.
Lodge says federal laws require the courts to have procedures in place for handling what is being called sensitive material.
